  • Abstract This thesis consists of two subjects of research: A Digital Modulation bit error rate study for transmission using the human body as the transmission channel, and signal coupling using a piezo transducer.
    The first topic involves studying several kinds of Digital Modulation and application; the transceiver is implemented using LabView. The interface for transmission uses Piezo film transducers. A high pass filter is used to remove noise and interference. The bit error rate using Manchester-coding is measured. A brief discussion is presented justifying the choice of On-Off Keying (OOK) modulation to transmit data on the human body.
    The second topic is a study on the design and implementation of a human body transmission system. A test chip is designed in TSMC 0.35μm 2P4M CMOS process and first measured results are presented.
