In recent years, there has been major progress on implantable biomedical systems that support most of the functionalities of wireless implantable devices. Nevertheless, these devices remain mostly restricted to research, in part due to limited miniaturization, power supply constraints, and lack of a reliable interface between implants and external devices. This article provides a tutorial on the design of implantable biomedical devices that addresses these limitations. Specifically, it presents analysis and techniques for wireless power transfer and efficient data transfer from both theoretical and practical standpoints. Their potential implementations are also discussed.
