mm-Wave Rectifiers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


In the previous chapters, the analysis of the rectifier for wireless power transfer is presented. Issues of the rectifiers working at the mm-wave frequency are analyzed. In this chapter, based on the discussion of the mm-wave rectifier, solutions are provided to increase the rectifier efficiency, including the inductor-peaking method, local threshold voltage modulation, and increased isolation by output filtering. At the end of this chapter, the implementations and measurement results of mm-wave rectifiers in 65 nm CMOS technology are provided.
