RF Design for Ultra-Low-Power Wireless Communication Systems
Prof. Jasmin Grosinger
Associate Professor, Graz University of Technology in Austria
Abstract: This presentation shows radio frequency (RF) design solutions for wireless sensor nodes to address sustainability issues in the Internet of Things (IoT), which arise due to the massive deployment of wireless IoT nodes on environmental and economic levels. Engineers can apply these RF design solutions to improve the ultra-low-power operation of IoT nodes, avoid batteries’ eco-toxicity, and decrease maintenance costs due to battery replacement. The solutions offer high integration levels based on system-on-chip and system-in-package concepts in low-cost complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor technologies to limit these nodes’ costs and footprints. In particular, the presentation covers solutions for ultra-low-power wireless communication systems based on high-frequency (HF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies. The talk offers RF design solutions for HF and UHF RFID systems, revealing how to develop passive miniaturized IoT nodes that operate robustly in harsh application environments.
Speaker’s Bio: Jasmin Grosinger is an Associate Professor at the Graz University of Technology in Austria and a Visiting Associate Professor at the Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan. She earned her MSc from the Vienna University of Technology and worked as a Project Assistant with the Institute of Telecommunications. She later became a Laboratory Associate with Disney Research in Pittsburgh, USA. In 2012, she received her PhD from the Vienna University of Technology. Since 2013, she has researched (ultra-)low-power microwave components and systems at Graz University of Technology’s Institute of Microwave and Photonic Engineering. Jasmin has also been a Guest Professor at Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg’s Institute of Electronics Engineering. She is an IEEE Senior Member, and her research has resulted in more than 60 peer-reviewed publications and one US patent. Jasmin is actively involved in the Technical Program and Steering Committees of various microwave-related conferences and is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Technology Letters. She is also a member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) and was selected as a Distinguished Microwave Lecturer. In 2022, Jasmin served as the MTT-S S Administrative Committee (AdCom) Secretary. Since 2023, she has served as an Elected Voting Member of the IEEE MTT-S AdCom as a Vice Chair of the Publication and Meetings and Symposia Committees.
