Abstract
Digital microfluidic (DMF) devices can be used to perform complete chemical or biochemical analysis on miniscule droplets; thus they have the potential to replace large and expensive laboratory facilities. Droplets are manipulated on a DMF device by the application of electrical signals to an array of electrodes. Several droplet operations including transport, mixing, and splitting can be performed by the sequential timing of these electrical signals. However, the reliability and successful operation of a DMF device largely depend on improving its controller hardware and fabrication quality. A closed-loop controller uses feedback information to compensate for mo...
