This paper presents a 2.45-GHz wireless link to power on the miniaturized biomedical devices. In this link, a chip antenna is adopted for RF power transmitting, and a resonant network consisting of a compact inductor and a chip capacitor is employed for energy harvesting. A prototype is fabricated and measured in the time- and frequency-domain. The measured results show that this power transfer link meets the system requirement. In addition, in the case of a capacitor with 20% variation, this link can still achieve the system required efficiency. It therefore eliminates the adaptive matching circuit and simplifies the system design.
