Quasi-Static Self-Powering, Sensing, and Data Logging

Executive SummarySlowly acting events can be very difficult to sense, especially for self-powered sensors. Most sensors require an external energy source in order to detect the desired property and report results. For some applications however, a self-powered sensor is desirable that uses energy from the object being sensed in order to record the data....

Self-Powered Timer

Executive SummaryRemotely powered sensors are used in a wide variety of fields from medical devices to structural health monitoring. Most applications need to know the what, where and when of the recorded data. Currently sensors have limited ability to time-stamp events without incorporating power consuming peripherals. There is therefore a need to...

Temperature Compensation for Floating-Gate Memory Circuit

IntroductionNonvolatile computer memory is a type of memory chip that retains its data even when its power supply is turned off. One example is the erasable, programmable read-only memory chip (EPROM). Nonvolatile memory can store multiple bits per cell by storing a range of charge levels in a floating-gate analog memory cell. One of the challenges...

Method and Apparatus for Autonomous Self-Powered Integrated Piezo-Floating Gate Sensors

IntroductionEach year, hundreds of thousands of hip and knee replacement surgeries are performed in the United States. Most of these prosthetic implants are expected to last for at least 20 years after which revision and replacement surgery will be required. In many cases, however, excessive wear and loosening of artificial joints leads to joint swelling,...
