We present a power/data telemetry IC with a new data modulation scheme and simultaneous power transfer through a single inductive link. Data-driven synchronized single-cycle shorting of the secondary LC tank conserves reactive power while inducing an instantaneous voltage change at the primary side. Cyclic on-off keying time-encoded symbol mapping of the shorting cycle allows transmission of two data bits per four carrier cycles with simultaneous power transfer during non-shorting cycles. All timing control signals for rectification and data transmission are generated from a low-power clock recovery comparator and 22-phase 2× PLL. The 1-mm2 65-nm CMOS IC delivers up to 6.3-mW power and transmits 6.78-Mbps data with a BER of less than 5.9×10-7 over a single 1-cm 13.56-MHz inductive link.
