This tutorial starts from the first principles and covers the single and multi-stage CMOS RF to DC rectifier design, efficiency, the simulation methodology and the measurement methods for the chip input impedance — a prerequisite for the design of the optimum tag antenna.
Passively-powered RFID tags are limited by the energy in the carrier wave, and custom ASIC implementations give the maximum flexibility and power performance, but at an increase in design time. This tutorial will give an overview of the circuit requirements for a theoretical tag that was reverse engineered from the Gen2 specification.
Learn the do’s and don’ts for writing better technical papers and more successful grant proposals. Learn views and tips on how to avoid common mistakes that often result in a speedy rejection. And, maybe most importantly, learn how to maximize ethics and minimize honest mistakes like accidental plagiarism.
