Implantable medical devices (IMDs) have been successfully developed in a wide range of medical and neuroscience applications to treat disorders or monitor biological signals from patients. Wireless data transmission is very essential for these IMDs to communicate with an external unit, control the parameters in the IMDs, and inform the monitoring status. The near-field data transfer techniques, called data telemetries, have been widely used for IMD applications thanks to relatively low power dissipation compared to far-field data communication. These data telemetries highly require the efficient data link between an external unit and IMDs considering several requirements, such as the data rate of the up-/downlinks, the distance between the transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx), robustness against link variations, and power consumption in the IMDs.
