Abstract

This paper reviews the state-of-art of the subthreshold level design energy harvesters for powering biomedical implants. Power consumption and lifespan are crucial requirements for the electronic circuitry of implantable systems. In order to meet these challenging requirements, a design for an energy harvester that operates in a subthreshold level offers a promising solution.
