2ApplicationULP-AMIUltra Low Power Active Medical Implant com-munication systems (ULP-AMI). This RIR covers systems specifically designed for the purpose of providing non-voice digital communications between active medical implants and/or body-worn devices and other associated peripherals used for transferring non-time critical individual patient-related physiological information.
3Frequency band401 - 402 MHz-
4Channelling25 kHz.
Individual transmitters may combine adjacent 25 kHz channels for increased bandwidth up to 100 kHz.
Techniques to access spectrum and mitigate interference that provide at least equivalent performance to the techniques described in harmonised standards adopted under Directive 2014/53/EU must be used. Alternatively a duty cycle limit of 0,1 % may also be used.
5Modulation / Occupied bandwidth--
6Direction / Separation--
7Transmit power / Power densityMax. 0.25 uW e.r.p. for systems using LP/LDC.
Max. 25 uW e.r.p. for systems using LBT/AFA.
LP = Low Power. LDC = Low Duty Cycle.
AFA = Adaptive Frequency Agility. LBT= Listen Before Talk.
Refer to EN 302 537 for functions and limits of MEDS with LBT/AFA.
8Channel access and occupation rulesDuty Cycle max. 0.1% for 0.25 uW e.r.p. power limit.
LBT/AFA for 25 uW e.r.p. power limit.
Techniques to access spectrum and mitigate interference that provide at least equivalent performance to the techniques described in harmonised standards adopted under Directive 2014/53/EU must be used. Alternatively a duty cycle limit of 0,1 % may also be used.
