A Millimeter-Wave Low-Power Active Backscatter Tag for FMCW Radar Systems

In this paper, a fully integrated active backscatter transponder based on the switched injection-locked oscillator (SILO) principle for frequency-modulated continuous-wave radar applications is presented. Furthermore, a method to characterize a SILO amplifier is extended and utilized to measure the system parameters of the presented backscatter tag that… CONTINUE READING
