Sensor nodes auto­no­mous from power-supply

Milli­meter-Wave (mm-wave) wire­less commu­ni­ca­tion provides several GHz ISM band­width using high data rate commu­ni­ca­tion in short bursts with high duty-cycle for lowest power systems. Combined with an on-chip wire­less power recei­ving tech­nique, an on-chip antenna, a fully inte­grated mono­li­thic passive mm-wave sensor node for internet of things (IoT) can be realized. Such a sensor node is auto­no­mous from an external power-supply, as well it can sense the envi­ron­ment, receive commands and transfer the sensing infor­ma­tion.
