Title (EN) IMPLANTABLE DEVICE INCLUDING MULTIPLE COMMUNICATION ANTENNAS
(FR) DISPOSITIF IMPLANTABLE A ANTENNES DE COMMUNICATION MULTIPLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An implantable device, such as an implantable medical device (IMD) includes at least two radio frequency (RF) antennas and may additionally include an RF communication circuit. The RF antennas are spatially diverse, are disposed adjacent a housing, and are each configured to receive RF signals transmitted to the IMD from a remote RF signal source. The RF communication circuit, if included, is disposed within the housing and is configured to selectively receive the RF signals received by one or more of the spatially diverse RF antennas.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif implantable, tel qu'un dispositif médical implantable, comprenant au moins deux antennes à radiofréquence (RF) et, facultativement, un circuit de communication RF. Les antennes RF présentent une diversité spatiale, et sont disposées de manière adjacente à un boîtier et configurées pour recevoir des signaux RF transmis au dispositif à partir d'une source de signal RF distante. Le circuit de communication RF, le cas échéant, est disposé dans le boîtier et configuré pour recevoir de manière sélective les signaux RF reçus par une ou plusieurs des antennes RF à diversité spatiale.
