Mehodology for Low Power Radio Frequency Design for Body Area Network
The body area network forms an essential part of medical data analysis. The paper here describes the various kinds of body area networks, the frequency bands used MICS and ISM, the antennas used in the analytic nodes. The dual band antenna using the split ring resonator with a microstrip patch antenna is described here which has a multilayer configuration. A layer of superstrate with no metallization layer is left on top of it to protect the human body from the ill effects of radiation. Spiral structure of the radiating elements leads to miniaturization of the antenna.
