Abstract

In this paper we propose a compact size rectangular implantable tri-band patch antenna for biotelemetry applications. Rogers RT6010 is used as substrate and superstrate material. The resonant frequency is further lowered by using a shorting pin which also reduces patch resistance. For excitation 50-ohm microstrip line is used. The antenna operates in MICS band (402405) MHz, ISM band (902-928) MHz and (2.4-2.48) GHz at 402 MHz, 915 MHz and 2.4 GHz. The gain of the antenna is 2.05 dBi, 2.67 dBi and 5.39 dBi with bandwidth of 120 MHz, 166 MHz and 190 MHz at relevant frequencies when simulated in a fat layer box. SAR values are within allowable limits. The simulated results show that the antenna is an excellent choice for implantable applications as it can be used for data transmission, wakeup signal and wireless power transfer by using three frequency bands.
