Student project: Miniaturized RF transceiver for implantable applications

Eindhoven - Master projects/internships
More than two weeks ago

We will develop key components of the RF transceiver that with extremely small volume, in the order of few mm2 for implantable applications. In such design, many external components may need to be removed or integrated on-chip, e.g., battery, PMU, or even antenna.


Student project: Miniaturized RF transceiver for implantable applications

What you will do

External components are indispensable components in wireless communication but limits the size reduction of the overall wireless module. Many applications, e.g., capsule
endoscopy, need a complete integration for small-size RF transceiver, which cannot afford to employ any bulky external components (e.g., de-cap, filter, etc). To realize a miniaturized transceiver, a zero-BOM transceiver design will be investigated in this project.

  • Literature studies on state-of-the-art wireless transceiver
  • Understanding both analog and digital/system design methodologies
  • Architecture study and proposal
  • Circuit implementation
  • Layout and post-layout simulation
