Objectives: To design and develop a Wireless device for Deep Brain Stimulation studies in Rat Model. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: In order to model the design, we have used ASIC (Application Specified) and Off the Shelf Components that helps the device Cheap and portable. We have designed the device using Allegro PCB Design and OrCad. Findings: Before the real time execution in rat models, we tested our device in vitro. Device is observed using oscilloscope. We ensured the life time of the device that can extend up to 90 days. In comparing with other commercial stimulators, this device has long duration of life time with high accuracy in delivering output pulses and less expensive. In order to show the reliability, we have included complete schematics and market price of the components used. Application/Improvements: The current device can be made use to deliver Unbalanced Biphasic Output Pulses.
