Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SCDCDC (Design of Switched Capacitor DC-DC Converters Suitable for Wireless and Bio Sensor Applications)
Reporting period: 2015-04-01 to 2017-03-31
As part of this research, Switched Capacitor DC-DC Converters have been designed and integrated with an ultra-low power transmitter on a single silicon die. These Nano-nodes will be the building blocks of smart sensor networks that can be deployed massively. Future work is to integrate energy harvesters on the same system to create a fully autonomous sensor node to be used in bio-sensors and for smart homes/cities.
As part of dissemination, 2 journal papers are in review for publication and 2 patents have been filed with the Turkish Patent Office with an option to extend to international IP protection.
