Abstract:Bioelectronics, which record the electrical activity of organisms, have become one of the major research areas for many purposes. Effectively adaptable and minuscule electronics led to this new era of bio-signal recording. Biomedical electronics also have soft and flexible characteristics with skin-mountable applications. Since bioelectronics are small enough to be portable, they allow the operation of devices without any limitations incurred by wired communications. Therefore, portable and skin-mountable devices require wireless power transfer between the devices and the transmitter. The wireless sensor network based on a near-field communication (NFC) increases the capability of the devices with a great power efficiency. This thesis shows an inductive link of the coil antenna designs that present a wireless power transfer system based on a near-field communication. The coil antennas contribute the electronics to receive power wirelessly and monitor the collected data continuously. Both coil antennas for the transmitter and the receiver are constructed of a material based on the conductivity with cost-effectiveness. In addition, the receiving antenna is designed based on soft and flexible materials so that it can be attached to the skin with bioelectronics.
