—A new technique, the steepest descent-fast multipole method (SDFMM), is developed to efficiently analyze scattering from perfectly conducting random rough surfaces. Unlike other prevailing methods, this algorithm has linear computational complexity and memory requirements, making it a suitable candidate for analyzing scattering from large rough surfaces as(More)
The partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) formulation is an integral-equation-based approach for the solution of combined circuit and electromagnetic (EM) problems. In this paper, a surface-based PEEC formulation is presented to complement the existing volume-based method. With the rise in the operating frequencies and the increasing complexity of test(More)
A programmable wireless identification and sensing device is powered through energy harvesting and a software-defined RFID reader provides the means to investigate optimization approaches for RFID systems. ABSTRACT | The next generation internet will be the internet of things (and not just of computing devices like PCs, PDAs); this is presumed to be enabled(More)
Passive RF identification (RFID) tags are traditionally assumed to be downlink limited since typical tag sensitivity is considerably poorer than reader sensitivity, due to stringent power limitations. On the other hand, semipassive tags are generally uplink limited because of improvement in tag sensitivity for battery-assisted tags. In this paper, it is(More)
the radiating-basis triangular element, is introduced on this antenna (Fig. 5). The goal here is to combine the matching frequencies of the two created antennas (one with h 1 ϭ 7.5 mm, and the other h 2 ϭ 15 mm) and thus to widen the resultant bandwidth of the structure. This results in a VSWR of about 1.5 (Fig. 6) and a much better adaptation from 3 to 7(More)
Boundary element methods are being successfully used for modeling parasitic effects in cutting-edge circuit design. The dense system matrix generated therein presents a time and memory bottleneck. Fast iterative solver techniques, developed to address the problem, suffer from convergence issues which become pronounced for large number of right hand sides as(More)
The Partial-Element-Equivalent-Circuit (PEEC) approach is an effective method to convert three-dimensional on-chip multi-conductor structures to circuit-level descriptions. In this paper, a triangular-mesh-based PEEC approach is described, wherein the surfaces of arbitrarily-shaped conducting structures are represented by triangular mesh tesselations. A(More)
In this paper, a new formulation for coupled circuit-electromagnetic (EM) simulation is presented. The formulation employs full-wave integral equations to model the EM behavior of two- or three-dimensional structures while using modified nodal analysis to model circuit interactions. A coupling scheme based on charge and current continuity and potential(More)
