Abstract

A sensor network system utilizing a low-power and miniature FSK transceiver for short-range biomedical applications is presented The transceiver uses the new un-licensed band at 402-405 MHz recently allocated to Medical Implant Communication Systems (MICS) by FCC [1]. Although this band seems attractive providing low body absorption at these frequencies, it poses many challenges for RF designers to consider. Full-integration and low-power are the most important criteria for such an implantable transceiver. This paper mainly describes research work carried out on the design of a fully-integrated 402-MHz 0.18-μm low-power CMOS transceiver and discusses some of the challenges associated with full integration. System and circuit level issues are also addressed.
