Abstract

This paper presents a miniaturised magnetic antenna that can be used for Wireless Implanted Medical device (WIMD). This antenna is designed for data transmission. The miniaturisation factor achieved is 1/9th of the size of a loop antenna in free space. The antenna was designed to work at Ultra High Frequency (UHF) frequencies range with an UHF Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip. This design could be used for other frequency ranges. Due to the high miniaturization factor the performances of the antenna are impacted but a read range of up to 80mm was achieved within a simplified phantom representing blood and fat.
