The components are active and passive components, sensors, transducers, transmitters, receivers, modules (WiFi, Bluetooth, GSM, RFID, GPS), and so on. Filters Passive Filters: An arrangement of energy storage elements. The term “capacitive” is used since the arrangement of electrodes and targeted cells/tissue resembles a capacitor (an electrical element used to temporarily store a charge) with the tissue/cells in their dielectric medium placed between a pair of electrodes.
