This research study involved the analog CMOS design of an ultra-low power current reference applicable on wireless devices, especially on passive RFID tags. Passive RFID are battery-less circuit that needs to convert incoming RF power into a DC voltage using rectifier circuit. However, the tag can be read only at very short distances, typically a few feet at most. This greatly limits the device for certain applications. From this, a low power current reference for passive RFID applications is… CONTINUE READING
