Design and Fabrication of an Ingestible Rechargeable Capsule for Thermal Monitoring
Article publication date: 1 February 1989
JHU/APL has developed and tested ingestible pills that telemeter core body temperature. The hybrids were manufactured as chip and wire on thick film ceramic substrates and surface mount on polyimide boards. The devices have potential applications for divers, astronauts, soldiers in combat, people working in hazardous conditions and people with hypothermia and hyperthermia. Descriptions of both circuit operation and packaging techniques are included.
