A range of new applications of neural interfaces have developed in the past few decades. Cochlear implants led to retinal implants, motor cortex recording prostheses, sensory prostheses, and closed-loop sense and control devices that have yet to be developed. As these new systems are invented, the number of recording or stimulation channels has increased, and our ambition has outpaced certain areas of technology, specifically the hermetic packaging of implantable devices. For a device implanted...
