Biomedical instruments are widely used in modern medical facilities. Among theseinstruments, pH measurement is a vital biomedical application. Biomedical sensors like ISFET are used to detect the pH level. In the current work, a detailed explanation of the ISFET fabrication is discussed. The fabricated ISFET by the proposed method is characterized. After characterization, ID curve is plotted for different pH solutions. A macro-model of the fabricated ISFET is prepared. This macro-model is used to design a readout and bias circuit. The bias circuit is used to provide constant current to ISFET, the current is controlled by a resistor. An opamp is used to source current. The output is taken through a differential amplifier. The output is almost rail to rail (3 V for 3.3 V supply). The op-amp used has a PSRR of 65 db and resistor used to control current is made process independent by parallel-series splitting of a poly-silicon resistor. The total circuit is simulated in cadence software using AMS (Austria Micro System) 0.35 μm technology having 3 metal layers and two poly-silicon layers.
