Description

    RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • [0001]
    This application is a continuation application of pending U.S. patent application Ser. No. 11/145,048 filed Jun. 3, 2005 entitled “Method And Apparatus For Providing Rechargeable Power In Data Monitoring And Management Systems”, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference for all purposes.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to data monitoring and management systems. More specifically, the present invention relates to a method and apparatus for providing rechargeable power used in data monitoring systems such as glucose monitoring systems.
  • [0003]
    Glucose monitoring systems including continuous and discrete monitoring systems generally include a small, lightweight battery powered and microprocessor controlled system which is configured to detect signals proportional to the corresponding measured glucose levels using an electrometer, and RF signals to transmit the collected data. One aspect of such glucose monitoring systems include a sensor configuration which is, for example, mounted on the skin of a subject whose glucose level is to be monitored. The sensor cell may use a three-electrode (work, reference and counter electrodes) configuration driven by a controlled potential (potentiostat) analog circuit connected through a contact system.
  • [0004]
    The battery providing power to the microprocessor controlled system is typically configured for a limited duration usage, and thus would require periodic replacement. Furthermore, given the compact size of the system, as well as the need for water tight seals, it is not desirable to have removable components such as battery covers or additional electrical contacts that may be exposed to the environment or to the patient's skin without the addition of seals and covers.
  • [0005]
    In view of the foregoing, it would be desirable to have an approach to readily and easily provide rechargeable power to the battery in the microprocessor controlled system.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0006]
    In view of the foregoing, in accordance with the various embodiments of the present invention, there is provided a method and apparatus for charging the battery through the existing analog electrical contacts (electrodes) using the ESD protection circuitry.
  • [0007]
    More specifically, in one embodiment of the present invention, using the guard and the counter electrodes coupled to the transmitter unit of the data monitoring and management system, the power supply of the transmitter unit may be recharged so that the power supply need not be repeatedly replenished when it has been depleted of power and can not support reliable system operation.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • [0015]
    FIG. 1 illustrates a data monitoring and management system such as, for example, a glucose monitoring system 100 in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. In such embodiment, the glucose monitoring system 100 includes a sensor 101, a transmitter 102 coupled to the sensor 101, and a receiver 104 which is configured to communicate with the transmitter 102 via a communication link 103. The receiver 104 may be further configured to transmit data to a data processing terminal 105 for evaluating the data received by the receiver 104. Only one sensor 101, transmitter 102, communication link 103, receiver 104, and data processing terminal 105 are shown in the embodiment of the glucose monitoring system 100 illustrated in FIG. 1. However, it will be appreciated by one of ordinary skill in the art that the glucose monitoring system 100 may include one or more sensor 101, transmitter 102, communication link 103, receiver 104, and data processing terminal 105, where each receiver 104 is uniquely synchronized with a respective transmitter 102. Moreover, within the scope of the present invention, the glucose monitoring system 100 may be a continuous monitoring system, or a semi-continuous or discrete monitoring system.
  • [0016]
    In one embodiment of the present invention, the sensor 101 is physically positioned on the body of a user whose glucose level is being monitored. The sensor 101 may be configured to continuously sample the glucose level of the user and convert the sampled glucose level into a corresponding data signal for transmission by the transmitter 102. In one embodiment, the transmitter 102 is mounted on the sensor 101 so that both devices are positioned on the user's body. The transmitter 102 performs data processing such as filtering and encoding on data signals, each of which corresponds to a sampled glucose level of the user, for transmission to the receiver 104 via the communication link 103.
  • [0017]
    In one embodiment, the glucose monitoring system 100 is configured as a one-way RF communication path from the transmitter 102 to the receiver 104. In such embodiment, the transmitter 102 transmits the sampled data signals received from the sensor 101 without acknowledgement from the receiver 104 that the transmitted sampled data signals have been received. For example, the transmitter 102 may be configured to transmit the encoded sampled data signals at a fixed rate (e.g., at one minute intervals) after the completion of the initial power on procedure. Likewise, the receiver 104 may be configured to detect such transmitted encoded sampled data signals at predetermined time intervals. Alternatively, the glucose monitoring system 10 may be configured with a bi-directional RF communication between the transmitter 102 and the receiver 104.
  • [0018]
    Additionally, in one aspect, the receiver 104 may include two sections. The first section is an analog interface section that is configured to communicate with the transmitter 102 via the communication link 103. In one embodiment, the analog interface section may include an RF receiver and an antenna for receiving and amplifying the data signals from the transmitter 102, which are thereafter, demodulated with a local oscillator and filtered through a band-pass filter. The second section of the receiver 104 is a data processing section which is configured to process the data signals received from the transmitter 102 such as by performing data decoding, error detection and correction, data clock generation, and data bit recovery.
  • [0019]
    In operation, upon completing the power-on procedure, the receiver 104 is configured to detect the presence of the transmitter 102 within its range based on, for example, the strength of the detected data signals received from the transmitter 102 or a predetermined transmitter identification information. Upon successful synchronization with the corresponding transmitter 102, the receiver 104 is configured to begin receiving from the transmitter 102 data signals corresponding to the user's detected glucose level. More specifically, the receiver 104 in one embodiment is configured to perform synchronized time hopping with the corresponding synchronized transmitter 102 via the communication link 103 to obtain the user's detected glucose level.
  • [0020]
    Referring again to FIG. 1, the data processing terminal 105 may include a personal computer, a portable computer such as a laptop or a handheld device (e.g., personal digital assistants (PDAs)), and the like, each of which may be configured for data communication with the receiver via a wired or a wireless connection. Additionally, the data processing terminal 105 may further be connected to a data network (not shown) for storing, retrieving and updating data corresponding to the detected glucose level of the user.
  • [0021]
    Within the scope of the present invention, the data processing terminal 105 may include an infusion device such as an insulin infusion pump, which may be configured to administer insulin to patients, and which is configured to communicate with the receiver unit 104 for receiving, among others, the measured glucose level. Alternatively, the receiver unit 104 may be configured to integrate an infusion device therein so that the receiver unit 104 is configured to administer insulin therapy to patients, for example, for administering and modifying basal profiles, as well as for determining appropriate boluses for administration based on, among others, the detected glucose levels received from the transmitter 102.
  • [0022]
    FIG. 2 is a block diagram of the transmitter of the data monitoring and detection system shown in FIG. 1 in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to the Figure, the transmitter 102 in one embodiment includes an analog interface 201 configured to communicate with the sensor 101 (FIG. 1), a user input 202, and a temperature detection section 203, each of which is operatively coupled to a transmitter processor 204 such as a central processing unit (CPU). As can be seen from FIG. 2, there are provided four contacts, three of which are electrodes—work electrode (W) 210, guard contact (G) 211, reference electrode (R) 212, and counter electrode (C) 213, each operatively coupled to the analog interface 201 of the transmitter 102 for connection to the sensor unit 201 (FIG. 1). In one embodiment, each of the work electrode (W) 210, guard contact (G) 211, reference electrode (R) 212, and counter electrode (C) 213 may be made using a conductive material that is either printed or etched, for example, such as carbon which may be printed, or metal foil (e.g., gold) which may be etched.
  • [0023]
    Further shown in FIG. 2 are a transmitter serial communication section 205 and an RF transmitter 206, each of which is also operatively coupled to the transmitter processor 204. Moreover, a power supply 207 such as a battery, including a rechargeable battery, is also provided in the transmitter 102 to provide the necessary power for the transmitter 102 where the guard contact (G) 211 and the counter electrode (C) 213 are configured to couple to the power supply 207 through ESD clamp diodes (in the analog interface 201). Additionally, as can be seen from the Figure, clock 208 is provided to, among others, supply real time information to the transmitter processor 204. As discussed in further detail below, the power supply 207 may be configured to be recharged via a select pair of the plurality of electrodes 210-213 such as the guard contact 211 and counter electrode 213, when the transmitter unit 102 is not mounted to a patient and configured for periodic transmission of measured data to the receiver unit 103. As further discussed below, the power supply 207 may be coupled or docked to a battery charging station or unit during the recharge process, where the power supply 207 is recharged and, thereafter, when the transmitter unit 102 is mounted to the patient and coupled to the sensor 101, the power supply 207 may be configured to provide the necessary power to reliably operate the transmitter unit 102.
  • [0024]
    Referring back to the Figures, in one embodiment, a unidirectional input path is established from the sensor 101 (FIG. 1) and/or manufacturing and testing equipment to the analog interface 201 of the transmitter 102, while a unidirectional output is established from the output of the RF transmitter 206 of the transmitter 102 for transmission to the receiver 104. In this manner, a data path is shown in FIG. 2 between the aforementioned unidirectional input and output via a dedicated link 209 from the analog interface 201 to serial communication section 205, thereafter to the processor 204, and then to the RF transmitter 206. As such, in one embodiment, via the data path described above, the transmitter 102 is configured to transmit to the receiver 104 (FIG. 1), via the communication link 103 (FIG. 1), processed and encoded data signals received from the sensor 101 (FIG. 1). Additionally, the unidirectional communication data path between the analog interface 201 and the RF transmitter 206 discussed above allows for the configuration of the transmitter 102 for operation upon completion of the manufacturing process as well as for direct communication for diagnostic and testing purposes.
  • [0025]
    As discussed above, the transmitter processor 204 is configured to transmit control signals to the various sections of the transmitter 102 during the operation of the transmitter 102. In one embodiment, the transmitter processor 204 also includes a memory (not shown) for storing data such as the identification information for the transmitter 102, as well as the data signals received from the sensor 101. The stored information may be retrieved and processed for transmission to the receiver 104 under the control of the transmitter processor 204. Furthermore, the power supply 207 may include a commercially available non-rechargeable battery or a proprietary or commercially available rechargeable battery.
  • [0026]
    The transmitter 102 is also configured such that the power supply section 207 does not significantly affect the battery life after having been stored for 18 months in a low-power (non-operating) mode. In one embodiment, this may be achieved by the transmitter processor 204 operating in low power modes in the non-operating state, for example, drawing no more than approximately 1 μA of current. Indeed, in one embodiment, the final step during the manufacturing process of the transmitter 102 may place the transmitter 102 in the lower power, non-operating state (i.e., post-manufacture sleep mode). In this manner, the shelf life of the transmitter 102 may be significantly improved.
  • [0027]
    Referring yet again to FIG. 2, the temperature detection section 203 of the transmitter 102 is configured to monitor the temperature of the skin near the sensor insertion site. The temperature reading is used to adjust the glucose readings obtained from the analog interface 201. The RF transmitter 206 of the transmitter 102 may be configured for operation in the frequency band of 315 MHz to 322 MHz, for example, in the United States. Further, in one embodiment, the RF transmitter 206 is configured to modulate the carrier frequency by performing Frequency Shift Keying and Manchester encoding. In one embodiment, the data transmission rate is 19,200 symbols per second, with a minimum transmission range for communication with the receiver 104.

No. 6,175,752 issued Jan. 16, 2001 entitled “Analyte Monitoring Device and Methods of Use”, and in application Ser. No. 10/745,878 filed Dec. 26, 2003 entitled “Continuous Glucose Monitoring System and Methods of Use”, each assigned to the Assignee of the present application, and the disclosures of each of which are incorporated herein by reference for all purposes.

    FIG. 3 illustrates the front end section of the analog interface of the transmitter in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to the Figure, the front end section of the analog interface 201 includes a current to voltage circuit 301 which is configured to operatively couple to the work electrode 210 and the guard contact 211, and a counter-reference servo circuit 302 which is configured to operatively couple to the reference electrode 212 and the counter electrode 213.
  • [0030]
    FIGS. 4A-4B illustrate detailed illustrations of the current to voltage circuit and the counter-reference servo circuit, respectively, of the analog interface shown in FIG. 3 in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 4A, the current to voltage circuit 301 (FIG. 3) in one embodiment includes an operational amplifier 402 having a non-inverting input terminal 405, and an inverting input terminal 404. Also shown in the Figure is a resistor 401 operatively coupled to the inverting input terminal 404 of the operational amplifier 402, and an output terminal 406.
  • [0031]
    Referring again to FIG. 4A, the work electrode 210 is operatively coupled to the inverting input terminal 404 of the operational amplifier 402, while the guard contact 211 is operatively coupled to the non-inverting input terminal 405 of the operational amplifier 402. It can be further seen that the work voltage source Vw is provided to the non-inverting terminal 405 of the operational amplifier 402. In this manner, in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, a separate contact, the guard contact 211 is operatively coupled to the analog interface 201 (FIG. 2) of the transmitter 102 (FIG. 2). The guard contact 211 is provided at a substantially equipotential to the work electrode 210 such that any current leakage path to the work electrode 210 (from either the reference electrode 212 or the counter electrode 213, for example) is protected by the guard contact 211 by maintaining the guard contact 211 at substantially the same potential as the work electrode 210.
  • [0032]
    Referring now to FIG. 4B, the counter-reference servo unit 302 in accordance with one embodiment includes an operational amplifier 407 having an inverting input terminal 408 and a non-inverting input terminal 409, as well as an output terminal 410. In one embodiment, the reference electrode 212 is operatively coupled to the inverting input terminal 408, while the counter electrode 213 is operatively coupled to the output terminal 410 of the operational amplifier 407 in the counter-reference servo unit 302. It can also be seen from FIG. 4B that a reference voltage source Vr is provided to the non-inverting input terminal 409 of the operational amplifier 407 in the counter-reference servo unit 302.
  • [0033]
    Referring back to FIGS. 3 and 4A-4B, in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, the current to voltage circuit 301 and the counter-reference servo unit 302 are operatively coupled to the remaining sections of the analog interface 201 of the transmitter 102, and configured to convert the detected glucose level at the sensor unit 101 (FIG. 1) into an analog signal for further processing in the transmitter unit 102. It should also be noted that, in the manner described, the Poise voltage (for example, at a value of 40 mV) may be determined based on the difference between the voltage signal level of the work voltage source Vw at the non-inverting input terminal 405 of the operational amplifier 402 in the current to voltage circuit 301, and the voltage signal level of the reference voltage source Vr at the non-inverting input terminal 409 of the operational amplifier 407 in the counter-reference servo unit 302.
  • [0034]
    FIG. 5 illustrates the battery recharging circuit in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to the Figure, in one embodiment of the present invention, the analog interface unit 201 of the transmitter unit 102 includes a pair of electrode contacts 510, 520 which are configured to respectively couple to the electrode contacts of the transmitter unit 102 for example, to the electrode contacts for the guard contact 210 and the counter electrode 213 (FIG. 3). Within the scope of the present invention, the guard contact 210 in one embodiment may not be configured as an electrode with respect to the sensor unit 101, but referred to herein as an electrode. The electrode contact 510 which, in one embodiment is coupled to the counter electrode 213 contact of the transmitter unit 102, for example, is coupled in series to a resistor 511 that is in turn, further coupled to a pair of ESD protection diodes 512, 513. Moreover, in one embodiment, the electrode contact 520 which in one embodiment is coupled to the guard contact 210 contact of the transmitter unit 102, is coupled in series to a resistor 521, that is in turn, further coupled to another pair of EDS protection diodes 522, 523.
  • [0035]
    In this manner, in one embodiment of the present invention, during the power supply or battery recharging process (for example, when the transmitter unit 102 is docked or positioned in the power supply recharging unit (not shown)), electrode contact 520 is coupled to the recharging unit's ground terminal potential, while the electrode contact 510 is coupled to the positive charging voltage supply. In this manner, as shown in FIG. 5, current I is configured to flow into the electrode contact 510 through resistor 511, and forward bias the ESD protection diodes 512, and 523, thereby charging the battery 530 of the power supply 207 (FIG. 2) for the transmitter unit 102, and then flow through resistor 521 out to the electrode contact 520 which is held at ground potential as discussed above. Due to symmetry, this process also works when electrode contact 510 is coupled to the recharging unit's ground terminal potential, while the electrode contact 520 is coupled to the positive charging voltage supply such that the ESD protection diodes 513, and 522 become forward biased.
  • [0036]
    In the manner described above, in one embodiment of the present invention, the current I may be monitored and the voltage drops across the resistors 511 and 521 and the respective pairs of the EDS protection diodes 512, 513, and 522, 523 may be determined (for example, based on current), so as to control the battery 530 charging voltage level and to ensure that the power supply 207 is properly charged.
  • [0037]
    Indeed, in one embodiment of the present invention, a positive charging voltage may be applied to one electrode of the transmitter unit 102 such as the Counter electrode 213 with respect to another electrode such as the guard contact 210, so that current would flow into the electrode contact 510 coupled to the counter electrode 213, through the counter electrode ESD protection resistor 511, and also, through the counter electrode positive clamp diode 512, and through the battery 530 of the power supply 207 thereby charging the battery 530 of the power supply 207. Additionally, the current also flows through the guard contact negative clamp diode 523, and through the guard ESD protection resistor 521, and out the electrode contact 520 coupled to the guard contact 210. In one embodiment, the counter electrode and guard contact ESD protection resistors 511, 521 include nominal resistor values from 50 Ohms to 1 KOhm.
  • [0038]
    In the embodiment described above, the counter electrode 213 and the guard contact 210 were used for the power supply 207 recharging process because they have lower ESD protection resistors (for example, at 50 Ohms to 1 KOhms nominal) as compared to the ESD protection resistors of the work electrode 211 and the reference electrode 212 which may be at 10 KOhms nominal. Moreover, the counter electrode 213 and the guard contact 210 have common clamp diodes (For example, having part No. BAV199) as compared to the low-leakage ESD protection devices that are required for the work electrode 211 and the reference electrode 212 (each of which may use STTRDPAD diodes or alternate ESD protection technology such as the SurgX 0603ESDA). Moreover, they have series resistors (10 k nominal) between the clamp diode (ESD protection device) node and the driving circuits.
  • [0039]
    Although both the counter electrode 213 and the guard contact 210 signals are outputs, in one embodiment, each has a series resistor (for example, 20 KOhms nominal) between the ESD diode clamp node and the associated analog circuitry (not shown) making it is acceptable to overdrive each of these signals with the charging voltage without causing damage.
  • [0040]
    Moreover, it should be noted that the charging voltage to the power supply charging unit should be limited to 3.6 Volts or less to prevent potential damage to the battery 530 and the transmitter unit 102 circuitry during the recharging process. The voltage limit of 3.6 Volts in one embodiment is the voltage limit of the processor 204 of the transmitter unit 102. For example, if the battery 530 is being recharged with a 10 mA current and the voltage across the ESD protection resistors 511 and 521 is modeled as 1 Volt each (assuming 100 Ohm valued resistors) and the voltage across the ESD protection diodes 512 and 523 is modeled as 0.7 Volts each (assuming BAV 199 part numbers), then the charging circuit would limit the charging voltage to 7 Volts, which is a sum of the voltages across the EDS protection resistors 511, 521, the voltages across the two ESD protection diodes 512, 523, and the voltage limit of the processor 204.
  • [0041]
    Moreover, while the counter electrode 213 and the guard contact 210 are used for the power supply 207 recharging process in the embodiment discussed above, within the scope of the present invention, the work electrode 211 and the reference electrode 212 may be used for the power supply 207 charging process.
  • [0042]
    Additionally, within the scope of the present invention, if the comparator used for data input through the AFE was maintained, then the comparator may be configured to toggle when the transmitter unit 102 is docked or coupled to the power supply charging unit, thus effectively, pulling the electrode contact 520 coupled to the guard contact 211 in one embodiment low with respect to the electrode contact 510 coupled in one embodiment to the counter electrode 213, and further, to revert when the transmitter unit 102 is undocked or removed from the power supply charging unit. In this manner, within the scope of the present invention, it is possible to provide a signal representative of an indication that the transmitter unit 102 is in a recharging process, such that the power supply monitoring algorithm for example, in the processor 204 (FIG. 2) may be updated accordingly. For example, the amount of battery 530 life, which decreases with respect to usage time, may be increased with respect to charging time. This allows an accurate estimate of usable battery 530 life so that a new sensor may not be inserted when the system does not have sufficient battery life to support proper operation for the life of a given sensor 101 (FIG. 1). Moreover, this may allow normal transmitter unit 102 operation and RF transmissions to be suspended when the transmitter unit 102 is being charged to prevent RF contention or collision with a second transmitter unit that may be used when the first transmitter unit 102 is charging.

    In the manner described above, in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, to maintain the smallest possible size and cost, is a method of recharging the battery or power supply 207 of the transmitter unit 102 through the ESD protection circuitry on two of the four electrodes 210-213. Moreover, in the manner described above, in one embodiment of the present invention, the risk of having a pair of unprotected battery contacts exposed to the patient and the environment is eliminated.
  • [0044]
    Indeed, as discussed above, in accordance with the various embodiments of the present invention, when the data monitoring and management system 100 (and in particular, the transmitter unit 102) is not connected to a patient, it can be connected to a battery charging system. This battery charger would hold one of the two electrodes used for charging the battery at the chargers ground potential. The second of the two electrodes used for charging the battery would then be brought to a potential to forward bias the ESD protection diodes causing a current to flow into one electrode, through any series resistance, through an ESD protection diode to the positive battery contact, through the battery—thus charging the battery, out the negative battery contact through another ESD protection diode, through any series resistance, and out the second electrode. By monitoring the current and calculating the voltage drops across any series resistance elements and the ESD protection diodes, the battery voltage can be controlled and proper charging achieved.
  • [0045]
    FIG. 6 illustrates a portion of the battery recharging circuit for battery recharging through ESD protection circuitry in accordance with another embodiment of the present invention. Referring to the Figure, a battery recharging unit 610 (such as, for example, a recharging docking station) is provided with a pair of diodes 611, 612 coupled to a resistor 613 as shown in the Figure such that a current I is configured to flow from electrode contact 510, into the transmitter unit 102, and back out through the electrode contact 520, thus creating a recharging current path through the rechargeable battery 530 (for example, FIG. 5) in the transmitter unit 102 power supply 207.
  • [0046]
    While the voltage level at the electrode contact 510 (at terminal Vout shown in FIG. 5) may be driven directly, the recharging unit needs to have knowledge of the recharging voltage at the battery, and thus the recharging current through the various ESD components such as the diodes and series resistors as described above. Moreover, most batteries require recharging based on a voltage-current profile over time. Indeed, many batteries require different voltage-current profiles for various stages of the charging process (i.e. one profile for a “fast-charge” portion up to 80% recharge and another profile for the remaining recharge portion, for example). As a result, the charging voltage is often driven through a shunt resistor 613, that is, at the drive node Vr3, with feedback to indicate the charging current and voltage (Vr3 minus Vout and Vout respectively).
  • [0047]
    In one embodiment, the battery recharging process through ESD protection circuitry may include driving node Vdrive and determining the feedback at the node Vdrive, node Vr3 and node Vout, to calculate the current into and voltage across the rechargeable battery 530, where the diode 611 and the resistor 613 are selected to match the component values of the ESD protection circuitry for the transmitter unit 102 being recharged. Thus the voltage across the diode 612 and the resistor 613 (Vdrive minus Vout) matches the voltage across the resistor 511 (FIG. 5) and the diode 512 (FIG. 5) pair and the voltage across the resistor 521 (FIG. 5) and the diode 523 (FIG. 5) pair giving the battery 530 voltage as Vout−2*(Vdrive−Vout) or 3Vout−2Vdrive.
  • [0048]
    One advantage of this approach is that there is no need to model the voltage drop across the ESD protection diodes, which are not linear with respect to current, as they match the voltage drop across the diode 612, where the diode 611 is inactive just as, for example the diode 513 (FIG. 5) and the diode 522 are inactive (there is similar component package heating as all components are used in a similar fashion).
  • [0049]
    For example, if the transmitter unit 102 being recharged uses BAV199 ESD protection diodes and 100 Ohm series resistors as described above, then the diode 611 is a BAV199 diode and the resistor 613 is 100 Ohms (the precision of which is selected as is appropriate) such that the current I=Vr3−Vout/R3 (resistor 613), which is equal to Vr3−Vout/100. The voltage at Vdrive is then driven using analog, digital (digital logic such as a microprocessor and a D/A converter) or some combination of mixed signal techniques (analog and digital) to maintain the preferred voltage-current battery recharging profile over time. Moreover, this technique allows the recharging circuitry to be larger and more complex while maintaining the small size and low cost of the unit being recharged.
  • [0050]
    FIGS. 7A-7B illustrates inductive battery recharging in accordance with alternate embodiments of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 7A, in one embodiment of the present invention, during the power supply or battery recharging process (for example, when the transmitter unit 102 is docked or positioned in the power supply recharging unit 760), power source 710, such as a wall plug or an external battery, is coupled to a power driver 720 of the power supply recharging unit 760. As shown in the Figure, there is also provided a power circuit 730 in the power supply 207 of the transmitter unit 102 which, together with the power driver 720 comprise a transformer. As can be further seen from FIG. 7A, the power circuit 730 in the power supply 207 of the transmitter unit 102 in one embodiment may be further coupled to the power supply source 740 which is configured to supply power to the transmitter unit 102 when the transmitter is in normal operation, and further, to the rechargeable battery 750.
  • [0051]
    In this manner, in one embodiment of the present invention, the power circuit 730 of the power supply 207 in the transmitter unit 102 may be configured to recharge the battery 750 based on a predetermined and/or desired voltage-current recharging profiles whenever power is applied via the power source 710 and power driver 720.
  • [0052]
    Referring to FIG. 7B, an alternate embodiment of the inductive power supply recharging schematic is shown, where, there is also provided a separate connection to the rechargeable battery 750 coupled to the power circuit 730, and which, in one embodiment is configured to supply power to the transmitter unit 102 power supply 207 via the power supply source 740, or alternatively, be recharged by the power circuit 730 via the power source 710 when coupled thereto. When recharging, the power supply source 740 may be set to 0 Volts to disable system operation, or alternatively, may be a valid operating voltage provided by the power circuit 730. One advantage of this approach is that the power circuit 730 need not account for power being consumed by the supply source 740 when recharging the battery 750 according to the predetermined and/or desired voltage-current profiles.
  • [0053]
    In the manner described above, in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, inductive power charging is provided using a transformer and receiving power from an external power source during the power supply or battery recharging process (for example, when the transmitter unit 102 is docked or positioned in the power supply recharging unit). Moreover, a rechargeable battery may be provided in the transmitter unit to provide power when the external power source is disconnected. Similar to the approach shown in FIG. 5 above, in one aspect of the present invention, the power circuit 730 may provide a signal representative of an indication that the transmitter unit 102 is in a recharging process, such that the power supply monitoring algorithm for example, in the processor 204 (FIG. 2) may be updated accordingly.
