I like searching through the paper/poster topics for unique, novel subjects that are not main-stream and might be areas for future growth. I was able to attend a few of these talks but was busy with customer visits covering the exhibition which made it impossible to attend more of them. Here are some that I came across:
- Design of a Cellular Energy Harvesting Radio
- New Fabrication Process to Manufacture RF-MEMS and GaN on GaN/Si Substrate
- Design of a Fully Planar Chipless RFID Transponder with 35 Bit Data Capacity
- SP48T Module Architecture RF-MEMS Multi-Throw Switches for a Multi-Beam Antenna Measurement Setup at K- and Ka-Band
- A W-Band MMIC Vector Modulator Utilizing Tandem Couplers and 50 nm MHEMTs
- Design and Characterization of a Novel Battery-less, Solar Powered Wireless Tag for Enhanced-Range Remote Tracking Applications
- A Wideband OOK for Wireless Receiver Capsule Endoscope
- Analysis of New Polarizing Properties of Negative Indexed Materials at Microwave Frequencies
- RF Devices Written with Carbon Nanotube Ink on Paper
- A Novel Fabrication Process for Printed Antennas Integrated in Polymer Multi-Layer Car Body Panels
- UWB Frequency Modulated CW Synthetic Aperture Radar for Through-the-Wall Localization
- Computer Simulation of the RF System Effects on a mmWave
- Doppler Radar for Human Vital-Sign Estimation
One that I attended that was very interesting was the Design of a Planar Chipless RFID Transponder where they are trying to integrate low cost, rugged tags on money in Australia. They print chipless tags onto money that are comprised of 2 UWD antennas and a multi-section resonator to improve security and prevent counterfeiting. The goal is to get the cost down to about one cent so it is feasible to tag currency.
A very interesting conference this year with interesting topics – Let us know what you found interesting this year in the technical sessions or tutorials.
