Summary This paper presents design and simulation of a miniature rectangular spiral planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) at UHF RFID band (902.75 - 927.25 MHz) for integration in batteryless deep brain stimulation implants. Operation in the UHF band offers small antenna size and longer transmission range. The proposed antenna has the dimensions of 10 mm × 11.5 mm × 1.6 mm, resonance frequency of 920 MHz with a bandwidth of 18 MHz at return loss of -10 dB. A dielectric substrate of FR-4 of εr = 4.5 and δ = 0.018 with thickness of 1.5644 mm is used in this design. The resonance, radiation characteristics as well as the specific absorption rate distribution induced by the designed antenna within a four layer spherical head model is evaluated by using electromagnetic modeling software which employs the finite element method.
