Sustained energy efficiency improvements have been instrumental for the vertiginous evolution of electronic systems with computing, sensing, communication and storage capabilities. Energy efficiency improvements are indeed crucial for continued increase in the performance under a limited power budget, reduced operating cost, as well as for untethering traditionally wired systems. This is indeed... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In this paper, the design considerations for a wide-range energy-quality (EQ) scalable RF wireless front-end are presented. A thorough design-space exploration for a MedRadio receiver highlights the critical circuit and architecture-level tuning knobs that are effective in achieving wide EQ scalability. Power-performance scaling limits of the low noise amplifier and frequency translation element... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Mobile, wearable, and implantable devices integrate an increasing number and variety of sensors, such as microphones, image sensors, and accelerometers. These devices spend substantial amounts of time reading the sensors within them, incurring significant data transfer from the sensor to the processor. The high capacitance of sensor-to-processor interconnects, high data rates of modern sensors... Read more on IEEE Xplore
