Low Power BLE Module for Wireless Communication among Speech Processor and Headpiece (Transmitter) of Cochlear Implants

Authors(1) :-Prof. Ramesh K

The most recent cochlear Implants Naida CI Q70 and Q90 from Advanced Bionics have their external devices such as speech processor and head piece (transmitter) ,Communicate with the reliable connection oriented network architecture. This architecture is complex with a long cable connected between speech processor and head piece (transmitter).This structure encounter drawbacks, like maintenance of cable, much cost on its small damage. Furthermore its rare and unique structure attracts the multiple queries from the people. Hence the idea is to Design Wireless Communication system for a CI device is the thought process. The proposed Architecture uses the 'UART to BLE 4.0 Wi-Fi module to configure Speech Processor and Head Piece (Transmitter) of CI as BLE 4.0 module that has hotspot for communication. In this paper we have provided sufficient results through simulation.
