Passive Wireless Sensor Including Piezoelectric MEMS Resonator
UCF Office of Research & Commercialization, FL, United States
A passive wireless sensor platform, which can be utilized to measure physical parameters such as temperature, pressure, stress, strain, etc. The platform is comprised of a base unit (wireless transceiver) and piezoelectric MEMS resonator (sensing element), which harvest energy from received RF signals of the base unit.
Primary Application Area: Electronics, Sensors & Communications
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: The proposed passive sensor platform is CMOS based and is cheaper than SAW based sensors. The device has better resolution than currently available passive sensors and consume less power than RFID based devices. It also has a smaller footprint compared to SAW and RFID devices.
