Murata Electronics today announced the availability of the Type 1RM ultra-small Medical Implant Communication System (MICS) band radio module. The LBAA0PC1RMH298 is designed for use in devices with data-intensive wireless capabilities that are used to diagnose, monitor, report, and provide warnings in support of human life. Typical applications include insulin, drug, and baclofen pumps as well as arrhythmia and bladder monitors.
Measuring just 8.6 x 5.6 x 1.7mm, this module is one of the smallest and most highly integrated solutions available. What differentiates the LBAA0PC1RMH298 from alternative products is Murata’s proprietary technique that discretely bundles several technological components and ICs into one miniatured package. The result is an advanced module that delivers a communication range up to two meters, an ultra-low current consumption of 0.2uA Sleep State, and a 128 kbps data rate.
