The exponential growth of interconnected devices in the age internet-of-things (IoT) is leading to a significant research challenges to develop new ultra-low power devices that reside at the edge. These devices need to have ultra-low power sensing capability, need to operate from harvested energy, need to have compute ability at the edge to reduce the amount of data, and need robust security features to prevent data theft and malicious hardware attacks.
At circuit level, new ultra-low power circuit design techniques for a variety of circuit blocks such as Analog front-end (AFE), Analog-to-digital converter (ADC), filter design etc. The new energy harvesting and power management techniques are leading to the development ultra-low power, lower voltage, energy harvesting circuits, new circuit design of analog and digital LDOs, current and reference voltage design. At system level, we need to incorporate compute ability to extract relevant information to cut down the deluge of data as cut down power spent in RF communication.
Further, IoT devices are widely distributed in our environment and are easy to access which makes them vulnerable to security risks. Various ultra-low power circuits and system design techniques with counter measures such as physically unclonable functions (PUF), side-channel leakage resilient circuit techniques are being discussed and integrated in IoT devices.
