Enhancing Security and Energy Efficiency in Next-Generation Wireless Radios with Ultra-low Power Energy-Detection-Based RF Circuits

March 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join us at 10:30 AM in RUCH 103 for a presentation from Ankit Mittal.

The next generation of intelligent wireless technology, expected to support over a trillion IoT devices, requires reliable connectivity. The challenging wireless channel conditions require additional IoT radio frequency (RF) infrastructure for reliable communication. In an increasingly congested IoT network, radios are compelled to stay active, draining energy while awaiting an available channel. Moreover, IoT devices’ limited security makes them vulnerable to resource-exploiting security attacks. Addressing these challenges, especially in energy-limited systems like batteries, is a significant challenge with conventional architectures consuming milliwatts of power.

In this talk, Ankit will present innovative circuits developed in 65-nm CMOS technology, enabling a robust, energy-efficient, and spectrum-aware IoT infrastructure, including “opportunistic” energy harvesting. Additionally, he will discuss future directions, emphasizing the “deploy-forget” approach in self-powered IoT systems.
