MSc thesis project proposal

Miniaturized mm-scale RF transceiver system for implantable applications (Imec)

Project outside the university

Imec, Holst Centre
IoT-based healthcare systems consist of a group of low-power, miniaturized, invasive or non-invasive devices with wireless communication modules that operate in the proximity of a human body. These devices can be placed in, or on the body to monitor the human body functions and characteristics. This technology offers continuous in vivo monitoring even outside the medical centers and provides physicians with a better understanding of disease dynamics. Hence, it can potentially revolutionize our current healthcare system from treatment-based to preventative/personalized-based medicines. To reach that dream, highly power-efficient and miniaturized wireless (implantable) medical devices should be realized. This vision is driving complete system integration on a single piece of silicon to improve system lifetime, size and cost, which are currently dominated by external components such as antennas, batteries and crystal oscillators.

• This project comes with a student stipend!
