A 10-Mb/s Uplink Utilizing Rectifier Third-Order Intermodulation in a Miniature CMOS Tag

This letter introduces an inductive power transfer (IPT) uplink to a miniature CMOS tag. The transmitter (Tx) sends a two-tone waveform at 5.728/5.768 GHz to charge the tag and excites a third-order intermodulation frequency at 5.808 GHz from the tag rectifier, which is then modulated and returned to the reader receiver (Rx) via the same coupled coils used… CONTINUE READING
