Short Description

Using mixed-signal SoCs developed at IIS it is possible to integrate a system to such an extent that its size is small enough to be implantable in rodents for conducting medical research. Despite low power consumption of the system the energy budget is still tight. Previous work at IIS has established a method using infra-red light and a solar cell to recharge the battery. This project should improve and build upon this previous work. The idea is to charge the implant's battery while the animal is in its cage from an IR-LED array, optimally while being tracked by the charging system to optimise charging efficiency.
