Abstract

In this paper we are interested in flow-based microfluidic biochips, which are able to integrate the necessary functions for biochemical analysis on-chip. In these chips, the flow of liquid is manipulated using integrated microvalves. By combining severalmicrovalves, more complex units, such asmicropumps, mixers, and multiplexers, can be built. In this paper we propose, for the first time to our knowledge, a top-down control synthesis framework for the flow-based biochips. Starting from a given biochemical application and a biochip architecture, we synthesize the control logic that is used by the biochip controller to automatically execute the biochemical application. We also propose a control pin count minimization scheme aimed at efficiently utilizing chip area, reducing macro-assembly around the chip and enhancing chip scalability. We have evaluated our approach using both real-life applications and synthetic benchmarks.
