  • Publication number: 20160361202
    Abstract: A device, system and method for inserting a pre-curved electrode array (100) held in a substantially straight configuration by a straightening member (101) into a cochlea of a subject. As the electrode array (100) is inserted into the cochlea by the device, the straightening member (101) is held by the device such that the electrode array (100) advances off the straightening member (101) such that it is free to take on its pre-curved configuration in the cochlea of the subject.

  • Patent number: 9127987
    Abstract: Described herein are a channel, system and method for monitoring voltages. Typically, the system includes multiple channels, each for sampling one of the voltages. The channels are physically and electrically coupled to a back end board on which is mounted a field programmable gate array (FPGA) that instructs the channels to simultaneously sample the voltages. Optionally, the channel is powered using an power supply that is isolated from the back end board, and transmits information over an electrically isolated connection to the back end board. The channel also includes voltage signal processing circuitry for processing the voltage signal on board the channel, and has stored on it channel identification information composed of at least one of an operating mode of the channel and a serial number of the channel, which can assist with voltage signal processing.

  • Patent number: 8798688
    Abstract: A data exchange system comprising a device memory module, a device antenna, a device transceiver system comprising a device transceiver module and a device antenna, a power manager, a first switch operable in a first state and a second state, and a power supply for providing power to the device memory module, the device transceiver, and the power manager. When the first switch is in its first state, the device memory module and the device transceiver do not consume sufficient power from the power supply to allow the transfer of data between the device memory module and the host memory. When the first switch is in its second state, the device memory and the device transceiver consume sufficient power from the power supply to allow the transfer of data between the device memory module and the host memory using the host transceiver system.
