BER performance of implant-to-air high-speed UWB data communications for neural recording systems.


Implant-to-air ultra-wideband communication systems are interesting for neural recording systems due to their low power consumption and high data-rates. In this paper we investigate the performance of an implant-to-air wireless link using a realistic model of the biological channel for neural recording systems. We propose an optimized fifth-derivative Gaussian pulse as a transmitted waveform for different modulations: binary phase shift keying (BPSK), on-off keying (OOK) and differential phase shift keying (DPSK). Monitoring of neural responses with high resolution in the brain requires a high data rate link as the number of electrodes is increased. Each electrode needs a data rate around 800 kb/s to support its neural channel. As we target more than 512 electrodes, we require a data link higher than 400 Mbps.
