A wireless electrical stimulation implant for peripheral nerves, achieving &gt;10&#x00D7; improvement over state of the art in the depth/volume figure of merit, is presented. The fully integrated implant measures just 2 mm &#x00D7; 3 mm &#x00D7; 6.5 mm (39 mm<sup>3</sup>, 78 mg), and operates at a large depth of 10.5 cm in a tissue phantom. The implant is powered using...

Studying brain activity in vivo requires collecting bioelectrical signals from several microelectrodes simultaneously in order to capture neuron interactions. In this work, we present a new current-reuse analog front-end (AFE), which is scalable to very large numbers of recording channels, thanks to its small implementation silicon area and its low-power consumption. This current-reuse AFE, which... Read more on IEEE Xplore

This paper presents an ultracompact design of biomedical implantable devices with integrated wireless power transfer (WPT) and RF transmission capabilities for implantable medical applications. By reusing the spiral coil in an implantable device, both RF transmission and WPT are realized without the performance degradation of both functions in ultracompact size. The complete theory of WPT based... Read more on IEEE Xplore
