    Abstract :

    The purpose of this paper was to design an antenna for implantable medical devices. This miniature implantable antenna is simulated using Rogers’s 6010 substrate having dielectricity of 10.2. A compact and miniature dual-band implantable antenna consists of an unsymmetrical spiral radiating stripe and a U-shaped radiating stripe is proposed for MICS and ISM band (2.4-2.48 GHz) applications. The length and width of the patch are optimized to attain the best performance. The modified antenna for medical implant resonates at two different frequencies, i.e. 2.42 GHz and 4.2 GHz with efficiency of 94%.The modified antenna is a dual- layered antenna having the superstrate layer of Rogers 6010 having dielectricity of 10.2 with two shorting PIN, which enhances the antenna results.
