Implementing a monolithic highly efficient ultralow photovoltaic (PV) power harvesting system is pivotal for smart nodes of Internet of things (IOT) networks. This paper proposes a fully integrated harvesting system in 0.18-μm CMOS technology. Utilizing a small commercial solar cell of 2.5 cm2, the proposed system can provide 0-29 μW of power, which is much higher than the commonly used passive radio-frequency identification devices in IOT application. The hill-climbing maximum power point… CONTINUE READING
