Introduction to design techniques for energy harvesting
Taskin Kocak, Dhiraj Pradhan
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/1773814.1773815

Scaling self-timed systems powered by mechanical vibration energy harvesting
Justin Wenck, Jamie Collier, Jeff Siebert, Rajeevan Amirtharajah
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/1773814.1773816

Passive energy harvesting from mechanical vibration has wide application in wearable devices and wireless sensors to complement or replace batteries. Energy harvesting efficiency can be increased by eliminating AC/DC conversion. A test chip...

Design considerations of sub-mW indoor light energy harvesting for wireless sensor systems
W. S. Wang, T. O'Donnell, N. Wang, M. Hayes, B. O'Flynn, C. O'Mathuna
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/1773814.1773817

For most wireless sensor networks, one common and major bottleneck is the limited battery lifetime. The frequent maintenance efforts associated with battery replacement significantly increase the system operational and logistics cost. Unnoticed...

An energy management framework for energy harvesting embedded systems
Clemens Moser, Jian-Jia Chen, Lothar Thiele
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/1773814.1773818

Energy harvesting (also known as energy scavenging) is the process of generating electrical energy from environmental energy sources. There exists a variety of different energy sources such as solar energy, kinetic energy, or thermal energy. In...

ULS: A dual-Vth/high-κ nano-CMOS universal level shifter for system-level power management
Saraju P. Mohanty, Dhiraj K. Pradhan
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/1773814.1773819

Power dissipation is a major bottleneck for emerging applications, such as implantable systems, digital cameras, and multimedia processors. Each of these applications is essentially designed as an Analog/Mixed-Signal System-on-a-Chip (AMS-SoC)....
