A wireless switch designated for battery-supplied implantable medical devices is designed and verified based on a passive RF receiver. The switch employs wireless energy recovery and wireless identification, and consumes zero standby power. Unlike the commonly used dry reed switch, the proposed switch features high tolerance to noise and disturbance, as well as compatibility with integrated circuits. The proposed wireless switch circuit has been implemented using 0.18 mum CMOS technology, and verified in a wireless capsule endoscope prototype system.
