MICS Modules from Murata enable wireless connectivity in implantable medical devices

Murata is making available a new addition to its Type 1RM family of ultra-small Medical Implant Communication System (MICS) band radio modules.

The LBAA0PC1RMH298 module utilises the 402-405 MHz frequency band and supports a 128 kbps data rate as well as cover a communication range of up to 2m.

The module is designed for use in body-worn and implantable monitoring/diagnostic devices, with the capacity to address data-intensive operational requirements. Typical applications include insulin, drug, and baclofen pumps, as well as arrhythmia and bladder monitors.

Supplied in an extremely compact form factor, measuring 8.6 x 5.6 x 1.7 mm, the module is one of the smallest and most highly integrated solutions currently on the market. It leverages Murata’s proprietary wireless technology, which bundles all the key constituent active and passive components into a single miniaturised package.

In addition to its elevated performance, the resultant module has a very low power budget with a sleep state current consumption of just 0.2 µA.
