In this study, design and the numerical analysis of a dual band (MICS (Medical Implant Communications Service; 402-405MHz) and ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical; 2.4-2.48GHz)) implantable antenna which is planned to be inserted in the header of the medical device is presented. The proposed medical implantable antenna (MIA) is in the type of planar inverted F Antenna (PIFA). For miniaturization, the metallic patch of the antenna is meandered and a shorting-pin is used between the patch and ground plane. Numerical analysis of the implant antenna is carried out using HFSS (High Frequency Structure Simulator) software. It is showed that return losses in the MICS and ISM band is lower than -10 dB and the gain of the antenna is consistent with the gain characteristics of the microstrip antennas.

The fully implantable cochlear implant (FICI) interface circuit proposed in this work senses sound harmonics from 8 different piezoelectric cantilever sensors, and generates pulse width modulated biphasic current outputs to stimulate the auditory neurons. Signals from the piezoelectric sensors are amplified, rectified, and sampled. The sampled voltage is held and converted to current by a novel logarithmic voltage-to-current converter. The current is then digitized with a current comparator to determine the...

Design of dual-frequency probe-fed microstrip antennas with genetic optimization algorithm
Ozgun, O; Mutlu, S; Aksun, MI; Alatan, Lale (2003-08-01)
Dual-frequency operation of antennas has become a necessity for many applications in recent wireless communication systems, such as GPS, GSM services operating at two different frequency bands, and services of PCS and IMT-2000 applications. Although there are various techniques to achieve dual-band operation from various types of microstrip antennas, there is no efficient design tool that has been incorporated with a suitable optimization algorithm. In this paper, the cavity-model based simulation tool alon...
