Signal and energy transmission for implanted systems

Aspects and approaches for the design of systems for simultaneous signal and energy transmission for medical implants are presented. The main focus is on the consideration of the mutual influence on both transmission lines. To minimize the influence of capacitive as well as inductive paths, that affect the transmission, reducing the number of components is discussed. In order to increase the degree of miniaturization and reliability, the realization of certain functionalities is based on the so-called parasitics of electrical components. An implementation example is presented.

Keywords: medical implant; MICS; data transmission; data throughput; energy transmission; packaging; impedance matching
