The optimization of a wireless system towards low power performance is not straightforward, it is the combination and trade-offs among different communication layers. In the physical layer, the frequency and the data rate are the fundamental parameters for optimizing power consumption in the wireless communication system. The radio-triggered passive wireless sensor receiver is a solution to achieve a low power radio, enabling a longer lifetime. In this paper, the system level analysis of the radio-triggered passive wireless sensor receiver is provided, including the trade-off between frequency and data rate. On transistor level, the detailed power consumption models of the RF front-end are provided. Based on the analysis, a mm-Wave radio-triggered passive wireless sensor receiver is proposed.
