This Automatic Impedance Matching system is designed to tune and match multiple frequency coils in order to monitor multiple nuclei of an artificial pancreas for Type I diabetes. This system uses an impedance sensing circuit to measure the reflected signal of the coil at the frequency of interest and a microcontroller to tune and match the coil. A prototype of the Automatic Impedance Matching system described in this report successfully demonstrates the capability to tune and match a simplified double frequency coil, and the system design can be extended to multiple frequency coils.
