A new input matching method making use of shunt-shunt feedback capacitance is introduced. Based on the new input matching method, reconfigurable SiGe low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) by varying shunt-shunt feedback capacitance are proposed. Two approaches are used to vary the shunt-shunt feedback capacitance. One approach is to switch between two different bias(More)
A batteryless remotely-controlled locomotive IC utilizing electrolytic bubbles as propelling force is realized in 0.35 μm CMOS technology. Without any external components, such as magnets and on-board coils, the bare IC is wirelessly powered and controlled by a 10 MHz ASK modulated signal with RS232 control commands to execute movement in four moving(More)
In this work, a method of an inductive coupling impedance measurement (ICIM) is proposed for measuring the nerve impedance of a dorsal root ganglion (DRG) under PRF stimulation. ICIM provides a contactless interface for measuring the reflected impedance by an impedance analyzer with a low excitation voltage of 7 mV. The paper develops a calibration(More)
This paper presents the implementation of a batteryless CMOS SoC with low voltage pulsed radio-frequency (PRF) stimulation. This implantable SoC uses 402 MHz command signals following the medical implanted communication system (MICS) standard and a low frequency (1 MHz) for RF power transmission. A body floating type rectifier achieves 84% voltage(More)
A 5.0-GHz-band monolithic direct-conversion receiver front end employing subharmonic mixers (SHMs) is demonstrated in 0.18-mum CMOS technology. Instead of using transistors as transconductors, the SHMs adopt on-chip 1:4 transformers to achieve voltage gain, and hence, excellent local-oscillator self-mixing suppression and good linearity can be obtained.(More)
A 2.1 to 6 GHz tunable-band LNA by using transistor-size scaling technique is realized in 90 nm CMOS technology, which adopts a scalable-size transistor mimicked by the parallel-connected transistors with binary weighted device sizes. In the 16 programmable bands located in the frequencies of interest, the S21 varies in the range from 15.1 to 16.9 dB, and(More)
This paper presents the design flow of two high-efficiency class-E amplifiers for the implantable electrical stimulation system. The implantable stimulator is a high-Q class-E driver that delivers a sine-wave pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) stimulation, which was verified to have a superior efficacy in pain relief to a square wave. The proposed(More)
The antenna was set in a three-dimensional substrate to increase antenna's quality factor. The best substrate shape shows significant improvement in measurement and simulation up to 18.35 % and 22.472 %. In this article we designed four different substrate shapes to analyze each inductor, resistance and quality factor. The errors of measurement and(More)
