Energy-efficient radio links are key to viable and widespread deployment of health monitoring devices. For these devices to be fully energy autonomous, breakthroughs at the level of both circuits and systems, and energy harvesting and storage systems are much needed. In this talk, we will first identify the energy gap between system power consumption and what energy sources can supply and then move on to discuss some circuit techniques that can help bridge this gap.
Jagdish received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering in year 2011 from the University of Washington Seattle. He received M.S. and B.Tech. degrees in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and Indian Institute of Technology Madras respectively. His doctoral research work focused on ultra-low power RFIC design for wearable systems. For the last 6 years, he has been working for Qualcomm San Diego on 4G and 5G radio systems for cellular applications.
