Multicoil Telemetry System for Compensation of Coil Misalignment Effects in Implantable Systems

IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, 2012

Inductive coupling-based wireless power transfer (WPT) is commonly used for near-field power and data transfer to implanted electronics. Some implanted coils undergo relative motion during device operation causing variation in magnetic coupling from their normal position. To ensure stable power transfer efficiency and frequency bandwidth, these WPT systems should have high tolerance with coupling variation. In this letter, a multicoil-based ...


High-voltage DC/DC converter for high-efficiency power recovery in implantable devices

2009 International Conference on Microelectronics - ICM, 2009

Implantable biomedical devices such as sensors and neurostimulators require a near-field inductive link to transmit power wirelessly. However, the near- field induced voltage is usually much larger than the compliance of low- voltage integrated circuit technologies. Thus most integrated power recovery approaches limit the induced signal to low-voltages with inefficient shunt regulation, or voltage clipping. We propose using a high-voltage ...

  • Multicoil Telemetry System for Compensation of Coil Misalignment Effects in Implantable Systems

    Inductive coupling-based wireless power transfer (WPT) is commonly used for near-field power and data transfer to implanted electronics. Some implanted coils undergo relative motion during device operation causing variation in magnetic coupling from their normal position. To ensure stable power transfer efficiency and frequency bandwidth, these WPT systems should have high tolerance with coupling variation. In this letter, a multicoil-based WPT system is utilized to achieve high tolerance for system power transfer efficiency and data bandwidth. It is demonstrated that a multicoil WPT system can reduce variation by half in power transfer efficiency (PTE) and by one third in frequency bandwidth compared to a two-coil WPT system with the same dimensions and operating conditions.

  • High-voltage DC/DC converter for high-efficiency power recovery in implantable devices

    Implantable biomedical devices such as sensors and neurostimulators require a near-field inductive link to transmit power wirelessly. However, the near- field induced voltage is usually much larger than the compliance of low- voltage integrated circuit technologies. Thus most integrated power recovery approaches limit the induced signal to low-voltages with inefficient shunt regulation, or voltage clipping. We propose using a high-voltage (HV) CMOS technology to fully integrate the inductive power recovery front-end while adopting a step-down approach where the induced signal is limited to a much higher voltage (20 V). We previously reported a first IC that includes a HV rectifier and a HV regulator, which provide up to 12 V regulated DC supply from a 20 V maximum AC input. In this paper, we report the design of a second HV custom IC that completes the front-end by integrating an adjustable step- down switched capacitor DC/DC converter (1:3, 1:2 or 2:3 ratio). The IC has been submitted for fabrication in DALSA-C08E technology and the total silicon area including pads is 9mm2. Post-layout simulation results show that the DC/DC converter achieves more than 90 % power efficiency while providing about 3.9 V output with 12 V input, 1 mA load, 1:3 conversion ratio, and 50 kHz switching frequency.

  • A Wideband Implantable Antenna for Continuous Health Monitoring in the MedRadio and ISM Bands

    The main objective of this letter is to present a small-size, dual-wideband implantable antenna operating in the Medical Device Radiocommunications Service (MedRadio) (401-406 MHz) and Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) (2.4-2.48 GHz) bands. The proposed antenna has a 71.6% reduction in size with respect to the previous similar dual-band implantable antenna. The measured -10-dB bandwidths are 56% (278 MHz) for the MedRadio and 33% (870 MHz) for the ISM bands, respectively. The antenna is in vitro tested in a tissue-mimicking gel approximating the electrical properties of human skin tissue. Results are compared to simulations.

  • Implantable electrical conductor flexure fatigue issues

    Recent work calculating bending stresses in implantable conductors has been applied to cine-angiographic measurements of implanted conductor bending radii. The maximum stresses in different conductors due to flexure at the measured radii can be calculated. In evaluating the viability of this approach using the Universal Test Coil (UTC) described in the Draft European Standard for Active Implantable Medical Devices, the maximum equivalent stress at the minimum physiological bending radius was found to be substantially greater than the endurance limit of the MP35N coil material. If this maximum equivalent stress behaves cyclically, this coil conductor should experience failures. However, the UTC has been shown to have acceptable reported survival in chronic studies over three years. This apparent inconsistency shows the difficulty of interpreting static and dynamic strains and their potential contribution to the fatigue failure of implantable conductors.

  • Software asset management and domain engineering

    Promoting reusability by managing software assets can greatly benefit companies that develop a family of similar products, where products are evolving from one another. One of the main goals of domain engineering is to identify and document the commonalities across the various products in a particular domain. Managing these common products or assets will keep the development cycle short for future products and help tame the large divergence seen in the development of different products. Guidant Corporation has been involved in the development of medical devices, such as cardiac rhythm management systems at CPI, which are complex real-time safety-critical systems. Cardiac rhythm management systems include implantable medical devices used to monitor human hearts and to provide appropriate therapy when needed. These devices and related products are constantly evolving as technology and market needs change. The systems being developed at CPI are thus a family of products and share many functionalities among them. There are several issues that need to be addressed in the domain analysis of a family of products.

  • An implanted antenna in the spherical human head: SAR and communication link performance

    To characterize the performance of implantable biomedical devices, the interactions between the devices and the human body need to be properly assessed. Specifically, wireless telemetry systems for biomedical applications require a reliable communication link between the interior device and the exterior equipment for exchange of required data and information. This paper mainly deals with the implantable antennas embedded on the head telemeter. To generate parametric data, the electromagnetic scattering analysis is confined to the human head and dipole antennas.

  • Electromagnetic interactions between biological tissues and implantable biotelemetry systems

    Biotelemetry which provides wireless communication links between internal devices and outside equipment is a promising function for future implantable biomedical devices. In order to build reliable wireless links, detailed characterization and performance evaluation of the telemetry links are required. In this work, the finite difference time domain (FDTD) simulations are performed to analyze the radiation performances of small dipole and loop antennas in biological tissues for various biotelemetry links. By comparing the electrical characteristics of vertical and horizontal loop antennas above a perfect electric conductors (PEC) plane, the effects of biomedical devices on biotelemetry links are estimated in terms of radiation efficiency and specific absorption rate (SAR). Finally, it is observed that electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) structures are useful candidates for biotelemetry link design.

  • High-voltage rectifier and voltage doubler in conventional 0.18μm CMOS process

    A high-voltage full-wave rectifier and a high-voltage voltage doubler for converting an induced voltage on a coil to a DC voltage were demonstrated in a conventional 0.18μm CMOS process using standard 3.3V I/O devices. High-voltage operations were achieved by stacking a number of transistors with their gate voltages controlled by the induced voltages. For a 300kHz, 14.2V peak-to-peak induced voltage, the voltage doubler achieved an efficiency of 92.5% for an output voltage of 13.7V with an output power of 2.9mW.
