A 0.43g Wireless Battery-less Neural Recorder with On-chip Microelectrode Array and Integrated Flexible Antenna

This work presents a single-chip battery-less neural recorder with 12 on-die microelectrodes. It can be powered wirelessly up to 16 cm away from a horn antenna at 915 MHz and only consumes 104 µW dc power for accessing 10 enabled recording sites simultaneously, transmitting at 5 Mbps. The implantable device integrated with a flexible antenna weighs only 0.43 gram. In vivo measurements on an unrestricted mouse have been successfully conducted, showing response to visual stimuli.
