Current neural probe devices are already capturing data at rates of hundreds of Megabits per second. Transmitting such high data rates for a long experiment duration over a wireless radio link will require a large battery which is detrimental. Efficient and high data rate radio transmitters have been developed, however there is still room for improvement.
This work will explore alternative wireless data transmission techniques such as backscatter which can strongly reduce the power consumed by the transmitter and build a working prototype using off the shelf electronic components.
