  • This paper reports on the implementation of a transcutaneous capacitive wireless power transfer (C-WPT) strategy for biomedical implants. The approach is based upon a series resonant converter in which the tank capacitors are replaced with a capacitive link comprising two pairs of coated parallel plates aligned around the tissue as the dielectric material. Miniaturized printed-circuit boards are developed that incorporate all requisite circuitry on the front-side of transmitter (TX) and… CONTINUE READING
