AB - This paper presents a novel wireless power transfer(WPT) scheme that consists of a two-tier hierarchy of near-field inductively coupled links to provide efficient power transferefficiency (PTE) and uniform energy distribution for mm-scalefree-positioned neural implants. The top tier facilitates a tran-scutaneous link from a scalp-worn (cm-scale) primary coil toa subcutaneous array of smaller, parallel-connected secondarycoils. These are then wired through the skull to a correspondingset of parallel connected primary coils in the lower tier, placedepidurally. These then inductively couple to freely positioned(mm-scale) secondary coils within each subdural implant. Thisarchitecture has three key advantages: (1) the opportunity toachieve efficient energy transfer by utilising two short-distanceinductive links; (2) good uniformity of the transdural powerdistribution through the multiple (redundant) coils; and (3) areduced risk of infection by maintaining the dura protecting theblood-brain barrier. The functionality of this approach has beenverified and optimized through HFSS simulations, to demonstratethe robustness against positional and angular misalignment. Theaverage 11.9% PTE and 26.6% power distribution deviation(PDD) for horizontally positioned Rx coil and average 2.6% PTEand 62.8% power distribution deviation for the vertical Rx coilhave been achieved.
