Chips for implantable
applications are buried under the skin, and have to be powered and communicate
wirelessly to an externally unit. A data link is required to sending the data
to the implant, or reading data from the implantable sensors back to the
external unit with a throughput up to 10Mbps in certain applications. The
(external to implant) power transfer should be able to deliver sufficient
amount of power, and its efficiency should not be significantly degraded by the
data link. Typically, high data link throughput and high power transfer
efficiency are in principle contradictory, in terms of the quality factor of
The project duration is of 12 months. This project can result, depending on maturity and performance, of the design in a tape-out of the designed circuits; part of the work will be spent in carrying out testing and characterization of the system. We target to publish the outcome of the project in a high impact conference or journal.
We seek very motivated candidates with electrical engineering and/or biomedical background, with strong knowledge of the RF and analog design workflow and acquainted with the Cadence tool chain.
The tasks in this project include:
