    A 90nm CMOS UHF/UWB asymmetric transceiver for RFID readers2011In: European Solid-State Circuits Conference, 2011, p. 179-182Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an integrated asymmetric transceiver in 90nm CMOS technology for RFID reader. The proposed reader uses UHF transmitter to power up and inventory the tags. In the reverse link, a non-coherent Ultra-wide Band (UWB) receiver is deployed for data reception with high throughput and ranging capability. The transmitter delivers 160 kb/s ASK modulated data by an integrated modulator and a Digital Controlled Oscillator (DCO) in UHF band with 11% tuning range. The DCO consume 6 mW with 0.12 mm2 area. On the other side, adopting two integration channels, the 3-5 GHz energy detection receiver supports maximum 33 Mb/s data rate both in OOK and PPM modulations. The receiver front-end provides 59 dB voltage gain and 8.5 dB noise figure (NF). Measurement results shows that the receiver achieves an input sensitivity of -79 dBm at 10 Mb/s, with power consumption of 15.5 mW.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an integrated asymmetric UHF/UWB reader transceiver in 90 nm CMOS technology for industrial enterprise IoT applications. The reader uses UHF transmitter to power up and inventory the tags. Instead of backscattering, tag replies the reader using Ultra-wideband (UWB) pulses, allowing high throughput transmission and precise positioning. Therefore, a UWB receiver is deployed in the proposed reader for data reception and Time-of-Arrival (ToA) estimation using energy detection schemes. The transmitter delivers 160 kb/s ASK modulated data by an integrated modulator and a Digital Controlled Oscillator (DCO). The DCO has 11% tuning range ability to cover different UHF signal channels. On the UWB receiver side, the 3–5 GHz energy detection receiver supports maximum 33 Mb/s data rate in both OOK and PPM modulations. The receiver front-end provides 59 dB voltage gain and 8.5 dB noise figure (NF). Measurement results shows that the receiver achieves an input sensitivity of -79 dBm at 10 Mb/s, and the power consumption of transceiver is 21.5 mW.

    Analog front-end RX design for UWB impulse radio in 90nm CMOS2011In: 2011 IEEE International Symposium of Circuits and Systems, ISCAS 2011, 2011, p. 1552-1555Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper a reconfigurable differential Ultra Wideband-Impulse Radio (UWB-IR) energy receiver architecture has been simulated and implemented in UMC 90nm. The signal is amplified, rectified and integrated. By using an integration windowed scheme the SNR requirements are relaxed increasing the sensitivity. The design has been optimized for large bandwidths, low implementation area and configurability. The RX can be adapted to work at different data rates, processing gains, and channel environments. It works between the 3.1-4.8 GHz bands with OOK or PPM modulation with a tunable data rate up to 33Mb/s. In order to relax the ADC sampling time an interleave mode of operation has been implemented. It has a maximum power consumption of 22m W with a power supply of 1V. The complete RX occupies an area of 1.11mm2.

    A 2.4-GHz ISM RF and UWB hybrid RFID real-time locating system for industrial enterprise Internet of Things2016In: Enterprise Information Systems, ISSN 1751-7575, E-ISSN 1751-7583, p. 1-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a 2.4-GHz radio frequency (RF) and ultra-wide bandwidth (UWB) hybrid real-time locating system (RTLS) for industrial enterprise Internet of Things (IoT). It employs asymmetric wireless link, that is, UWB radio is utilised for accurate positioning up to 10 cm in critical sites, whereas 2.4-GHz RF is used for tag control and coarse positioning in non-critical sites. The specified communication protocol and the adaptive tag synchronisation rate ensure reliable and deterministic access with a scalable system capacity and avoid unpredictable latency and additional energy consumption of retransmissions due to collisions. The tag, consisting of a commercial 2.4-GHz transceiver and a customised application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) UWB transmitter (Tx), is able to achieve up to 3 years’ battery life at 1600 tags per position update second with 1000 mAh battery in one cluster. The time difference of arrival (TDoA)–based positioning experiment at UWB radio is performed on the designed software-defined radio (SDR) platform.

    A Software Defined Radio platform for passive UWB-RFID localization2012In: 2012 IEEE International Conference on Wireless Information Technology and Systems, ICWITS 2012, IEEE , 2012, p. 6417741-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Radio-Frequency-Identification (RFID) with high sensing and positioning capability is the key technology enabler for the vision of the context-aware and location-aware computing towards the Internet-of-Things. However, the existing passive RFID in Ultra-High-Frequency (UHF) based on backscattering scheme can only provide limited ranging resolution and insufficient localization accuracy. Besides, it is sensitive to narrowband interference and multipath environment. Alternatively, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) has been recognized as a promising technology for the next generation RFIDs [1,2]. The Impulse-radio UWB (IR-UWB) implementations employ sub-nanosecond duration pulses without carrier, thus significantly reducing hardware complexity and power consumption. The wideband of the signals provide the potential of fine resolution in dense multipath scenarios. As one of the most attractive characteristics, UWB RFID potentially provides centimeter-level localization accuracy thanks to the ultrashort pulses with high time domain resolution by using time-of-arrival (ToA) estimation of the signal. There has been many works using UWB as active RFID tags for positioning and tracking application [3,4]. Moreover, in order to introduce UWB to passive RFID systems, UHF powered UWB-RFID system with asymmetric links has been proposed in [5]. Based on this UHF/UWB hybrid architecture, the positioning feasibility and ToA estimation has been studied in [6] in algorithm level.

    Sub-Nyquist Sampling Impulse Radio UWB Receivers for the Internet-of-Things2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the era of Internet-of-Things, the demand for short range wireless links featured by low-power and low-cost, robust communication and high-precision positioning is growing rapidly. Impulse Radio Ultra-Wideband (IR-UWB) technology characterized by the transmission of sub-nanosecond pulses spanning up to several GHz band with extremely low power spectral density emerges as a promising candidate. Nevertheless, several challenges must be confronted in order to take the full advantage of IR-UWB technology. The most significant one lies in the reception of UWB signals. Traditional receiver requires Nyquist rate ADC which is overwhelmingly complex and power hungry. This dissertation proposes and investigates possible sub-Nyquist sampling techniques for IR-UWB receiver design.

    In the first part of this dissertation, the IR-UWB receiver based on energy detection (ED) principle is explored. A low-power ED receiver featured by flexibility and multi-mode operation is proposed. The receiver prototype for 3-5 GHz band is implemented in 90 nm CMOS. Measurement results demonstrate that 16.3 mW power consumption and -79 dBm sensitivity at 10 Mb/s data rate can be achieved. To further optimize the receiver performance, threshold optimization is suggested for the on-off-keying modulated signal, and adaptive synchronization and integration region optimization is proposed. Finally, a low complexity burst packet detection scheme is proposed, which is adaptive to the variations of noise background and link distance.

    In the second part of this dissertation, the IR-UWB receiver based on compressed sensing (CS) theory is investigated. Firstly, appropriate sparse basis, sensing matrix and reconstruction algorithms are suggested for the CS based IR-UWB receiver. And then, the architectural analysis of the CS receiver with focuses on the random noise processes in the CS measurement procedure is presented. At last, a novel two-path noise-reducing architecture for the CS receiver is proposed. Besides the improvement on the receiver performance, the proposed architecture also relaxes the hardware implementation of the CS random projection as well as the back-end signal reconstruction.

    A mixed-signal timing circuit in 90nm CMOS for energy detection IR-UWB receivers2010In: 23rd IEEE International SOC Conference, SOCC 2010, 2010, p. 413-416Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a flexible timing circuit with 1.1ns delay resolution for energy detection IR-UWB receivers. Referenced at 900MHz input clock, the circuit generates multi-phased integration windows and reset signals that enable/disable the operation of analog blocks. The design is highly programmable, adapting the receiver to pulse level synchronization, symbol level synchronization, different data rates and various channel environments. Mixed-signal design flow is adopted to avoid the complexity of full custom design and the large power consumption of full synthesized digital design. The timing circuit is implemented in UMC 90nm CMOS process, with 219 #x03BC;W power consumption and 190*295 #x03BC;m2 die area.

    Low complexity burst packet detection for wireless-powered UWB RFID systems2015In: 2015 IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Wireless Broadband (ICUWB), 2015, p. 1-5Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the issue of UWB signal acquisition in the context of wireless powered UWB RFID systems. In this scenario, the data transmission is based on short packet so as to meet the micro-power budget of autonomous power harvesting. The burst short packet transmission as well as the low duty cycling UWB pulse modulation places a stringent challenge at the UWB receiver for timing acquisition and packet detection. Besides, in a positioning enabled RFID system where variable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) due to the variable link distance and noise background is unavoidable, conventional packet detection schemes rely on predefined threshold can hardly achieve good performance. In this study, we propose a low complexity method for burst packet detection. It is performed by sensing the preamble signal characteristic instead of the received signal strength, and thus bypassing the necessity of detection threshold. The validity of the proposed approach and its adaptivity to SNR variations is demonstrated by simulation results as well as field test with a UWB software defined radio (SDR) platform.

    Noise-reducing architecture of compressed sensing receiver for IR-UWB ranging systems2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A compressed sensing (CS) based impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) receiver with two-path noise-reducing RF front-end architecture is proposed. By adding an identicalinput path (antenna and gain stage) together with a mixer, the noise in the received signal before feeding into the CS sampling block is alleviated comparing with the conventional CS receiver. Moreover, the mixing stage shifts the signal frequency spectrum to the lower band which eases the CS sampling hardware as well as the complexity of back-end signal reconstruction. Simulation results for a ranging system validate that the proposed CS receiver significantly outperforms the conventional one in both additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel and IEEE802.15.4a multi-path channel.

    A Flexible Back-end with Optimum Threshold Estimation for OOK Based Energy Detection IR-UWB Receivers2011In: 2011 IEEE International Conference on Ultra-Wideband (ICUWB), 2011, p. 130-134Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Impulse Radio Ultra-Wideband (IR-UWB) exhibits strong advantages in low power and low cost applications such as RFID and Wireless Sensor Networks. This paper presents an on-off keying (OOK) based energy detection IR-UWB receiver with focus on the back-end design. In order to optimize the receiver performance according to different multi-path environment, variable integration interval and adaptive threshold optimization are considered in the proposed back-end which is composed by a programmable timing circuit and a reconfigurable baseband processor. The timing circuit is able to generate multi-phased integration windows with wide-range variable integration interval and is implemented in 90 nm CMOS process. Novel schemes on synchronization and optimum threshold estimation are suggested for baseband processing. The proposed synchronization scheme is based on maximum energy variance (between symbol `0' and `1') detection, covering both the pulse level and symbol level synchronization. And the scheme for optimum threshold estimation is based on look up table, enabling low complexity implementation. System simulation with IEEE 802.15.4a channel models shows an appreciable improvement on the bit error rate (BER) performance compared with the conventional scheme.

    Adaptive synchronization and integration region optimization for energy detection IR-UWB receivers2012In: Ultra-Wideband (ICUWB), 2012 IEEE International Conference on, IEEE , 2012, p. 62-66Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Non-coherent energy detection (ED) IR-UWB receivers exhibit strong advantages in low data rate, low power and low cost applications such as RFID and Wireless Sensor Networks. However, the performance of ED receivers is usually suffered from the noise enhancement due to the large time-bandwidth product. The integration region of the receiver integrator significantly affects the bit error rate (BER) performance. This paper presents a method of synchronization and estimating the optimal integration region (i.e., the starting point and the length of the integration window), which is based on the analysis of received signal energy capture and combined with a time of arrival (TOA) estimation. The proposed scheme is based on the symbol rate sampling and does not require a priori information about the channel delay profile. Besides, it can adapt to various indoor channel environments. The algorithm has a moderate accuracy but a very low complexity and fast synchronization speed. The validity of the proposed approach is demonstrated by numerical results using IEEE 802.15.4a channel models.

    Architectural analysis of compressed sensing based IR-UWB receiver for communication and ranging2014In: Proceedings - IEEE International Conference on Ultra-Wideband, 2014, p. 222-227Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Compressed sensing (CS) based impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) receiver has attracted much attention in recent years. This paper presents an architectural analysis of the CS-based IR-UWB receiver with focuses on investigating the random noise processes in the CS measurement procedure. We find that different noise sources (sky noise or amplifier noise) and different receiver architectures (parallel or serial) will results in different noise situation (correlated or uncorrelated) in the CS measurement procedure. Bit error rate (BER) simulation for a communication system and time-of-arrival (TOA) estimation for a ranging system in additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel as well as IEEE 802.15.4a CM1 channel are performed. It shows that CS-based signal detection in uncorrelated noise situation outperforms the correlated noise situation. This noise driven architectural analysis can be used as a design guideline for the CS-based IR-UWB receiver regarding different application scenarios.

    Exploration and performance evaluation of a compressed sensing based IR-UWB receiver2013In: 2013 IEEE International Conference on Ultra-Wideband (ICUWB), IEEE , 2013, p. 226-230Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Compressed sensing (CS) is an emerging technique which enables sub-Nyquist sampling of sparse or compressible signals. The application of CS theory in the impulse radio ultrawideband (IR-UWB) receiver design has recently attracted much attention. This paper provides an exploration of the CS-based IR-UWB receiver from different aspects: front-end hardware architectures, back-end signal processing algorithms as well as application scenarios. And the performance of the CS receiver regarding the number of CS measurement and different CS recovery algorithms is evaluated and compared against the conventional sub-Nyquist sampling receiver based on energy detection (ED) scheme. Moreover, a strategy to improve the CS receiver performance in handling UWB signals with heavy noise and multipath propagation is proposed.

    A Low-Power and Flexible Energy Detection IR-UWB Receiver for RFID and Wireless Sensor Networks2011In: IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers, ISSN 1549-8328, Vol. 58, no 7, p. 1470-1482Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an energy detection Impulse Radio Ultra-Wideband (IR-UWB) receiver for Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) applications. An Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) consisting of a 3-5 GHz analog front-end, a timing circuit and a high speed baseband controller is implemented in a 90 nm standard CMOS technology. A Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) is employed as a reconfigurable back-end, enabling adaptive baseband algorithms and ranging estimations. The proposed architecture is featured by high flexibility that adopts a wide range of pulse rate (512 kHz-33 MHz), processing gain (0-18 dB), correlation schemes, synchronization algorithms, and modulation schemes (PPM/OOK). The receiver prototype was fabricated and measured. The power consumption of the ASIC is 16.3 mW at 1 V power supply, which promises a minimal energy consumption of 0.5 nJ/bit. The whole link is evaluated together with a UWB RFID tag. Bit error rate (BER) measurement displays a sensitivity of -79 dBm at 10 Mb/s with 10(-3) BER achieved by the proposed receiver, corresponding to an operation distance over 10 meters under the FCC regulation.

    Design and demonstration of passive UWB RFIDs: Chipless versus chip solutions2012In: RFID-Technologies and Applications (RFID-TA), 2012 IEEE International Conference on, IEEE , 2012, p. 6-11Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reviews recent research on Ultra-Wideband (UWB) techniques for the next generation Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) towards the Internet-of-Things (IoT), conducted by Vinn iPack Center at KTH, Sweden. First, we introduce an inkjet printed chipless UWB RFID for ultra-low cost applications such as item-level tracking. The identification number is coded by variations of the impedance over the transmission line, resulting in the OOK modulated data by means of pulse reflections in time domain. Prototypes were fabricated and measured for 4-bit tag and 8-bit tag, respectively. Thanks to the employment of fully printing process and paper substrates, the tag is potentially ultra-low cost in volume production. Second, a wirelessly powered RFID tag with an active UWB transmitter is studied for advanced applications such as wireless positioning and sensing. The tag is powered by UHF continuous waves, whereas it uses an UWB pulse generator to transmit data to the reader. It ensures the improved coverage and accurate positioning over traditional backscattering UHF tags. UWB readers, positioning, and sensing are also discussed in a system perspective. The two solutions reveal that UWB is a viable alternative to existing passive RFIDs adapting both low-cost applications and high-performance sensing and positioning applications.
