    Abstract: A physiological information collecting system and a transceiver device thereof are configured to collect physiological information from animal bodies. The transceiver device includes a front-end circuit, a follower circuit, a quadrature delay line and an output circuit. The front-end circuit separates a discontinuous signal into an in-phase signal and a quadrature signal. The follower circuit outputs a control voltage and rotates the in-phase signal by a predetermined phase angle to output a follower signal. The quadrature delay line rotates the quadrature signal by a corresponding phase angle according to the control voltage. The output circuit synthesizes the follower signal and the quadrature signal and outputs a data signal by demodulating the discontinuous signal.
