The goal of this program is to develop a sensing platform with transducers (i.e. imaging, temperature sensing), wireless communication, high accuracy timer, processor, memory, battery and energy harvesting, in a 1mm3 volume. In addition, we will assemble and package sensor node platforms and disseminate them to the broader community for trials in a wide range of applications.

The goal of the project is to develop battery-less, ultra-low power sensor SoCs for cardiac monitoring that are capable of using harvest energy from vibration, thermal gradients, solar, radiofrequency and piezo actuation. Specifically we are focusing on ultra-low power (ULP) radios in asymmetric wireless communications that support the self-powered adaptive low power sensing platform (SAP) in ASSIST center.

This project seeks to improve the performance of all-digital implementations through exploration of new system architectures. Moreover, digital design flows such as synthesis and automatic place-and-route are utilized in order to simplify the design process. This ensures that designs are portable as well as take advantage of improvements that process scaling brings.
