Nowadays, advances in CMOS technology have made smaller transistors with higher performance possible. This trend towards making transistors with smaller feature sizes and lower supply voltages causes designers to find new structures that are capable of working at low voltages. On the other hand, system on chip and lab on chip techniques now make smaller and lower powered devices that can implement inside the body. Such systems are normally wireless and capable of transferring data to and from the outside body. ’ The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the problems associated with the design and implementation of an implantable transmitter. In fact, we want to implement a structure, which can modulate data using a local oscillator and send them out for a receiver. One of the main targets of this thesis is to use inductive components to supply the power of device, so that the size of device gets reduced and also its lifetime can be infinite. Also, a charge pump circuit is used to generate a DC power supply voltage for the implant from the incoming RF signals.
