Low Switching Frequency AC-DC Boost Converter for Wireless Powered Miniature Implants

Abstract

Providing wireless electrical power to an implantable medical device (IMD) is critical to an implant's efficacy. Wireless power transfer based on magnetic coupling is the primary approach to powering an IMD. Reducing the size and improving the efficiency are the two primary design goals for the power-harvesting component of an IMD. A pulse-width-modulated… (More)
