INC-IEM Neuroengineering Seminar

Abstract: An On-Chip RF Energy Harvesting module is proposed to deliver power to wireless sensors from incoming RF signals. This module provides a platform for battery-less, miniaturized wireless sensors that can be implanted inside human body to monitor physical properties such as pressure or temperature and send the reading wirelessly to an external reader.
