We here propose simulation results towards an integrated combined multiband IC architecture for RF energy harvesting.

Abstract

We here propose simulation results towards an integrated combined multiband IC architecture for RF energy harvesting. The proposed architecture has been designed in a 0.15 μm CMOS L-Foundry technology and optimized at three different frequencies, that is 90/900/1800 MHz. Schematic level simulations have confirmed that the proposed system is able to manage an incoming signal power typically ranging from -25 dBm to 5 dBm by rectifying the variable input signals into a DC voltage source with an average 65% efficiency. The chip area estimation. without the external antennas. is about 3 x 3 mm2.
