This two-part paper reviews recent innovations in circuit design that have accelerated the miniaturization of sensor nodes. In this second part of the paper, we focus on key building blocks of miniaturized sensor nodes, such as data transceivers, energy harvesters, power management units, and digital logic circuits. System level design considerations are… CONTINUE READING
