Abstract

An RF harvesting system and power management architectural strategy for autonomous ultra-low-power system is presented. In this work a particular attention is given at the antenna/rectifier structure showing the main achieved results in this field; moreover, the measurement of an assigned RF power density in the utilized frequency range is also presented. The designed rectenna takes advantage from a balanced structure, allowing a full-wave rectification with only two diodes. The compactness of the used antenna allows it to be integrated in small devices area. © 2014 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
