RFID-Enabled Sensor Design and Applications by Amin Rida, Li Yang, Manos Tentzeris PDF

RFID (radio-frequency id) is an rising verbal exchange approach know-how and some of the most quickly becoming segments of modern-day automated identity facts assortment undefined. This state-of-the-art source deals an excellent realizing of the elemental technical ideas and functions of RFID-enabled sensor platforms.

Design of Nonplanar Microstrip Antennas and Transmission by Kin-Lu Wong PDF

A one-stop connection with the layout and research of nonplanar microstrip buildings. because of their conformal power, nonplanar microstrip antennas and transmission traces were intensely investigated over the last decade. but lots of the gathered study has been too scattered around the literature to be precious to scientists and engineers engaged on those curved constructions.

Sample text

Tungsten is commonly used for these plugs. Following this we form the metal layers as sandwiches. The middle of the sandwich is a layer (usually from 3000 Å to 10,000 Å) of aluminum and copper. The top and bottom layers are normally titaniumtungsten (TiW, pronounced tie-tungsten). Submicron processes use chemicalmechanical polishing ( CMP ) to smooth the wafers flat before each metal deposition step to help with step coverage.

A typical submicron CMOS processes uses p -type (100) wafers with a resistivity of approximately 10 W cmthis type of wafer has two flats, 90° apart. Wafers are made by chemical companies and sold to the IC manufacturers. A blank 8-inch wafer costs about $100. To begin IC fabrication we place a batch of wafers (a wafer lot ) on a boat and grow a layer (typically a few thousand angstroms) of silicon dioxide , SiO 2 , using a furnace. Silicon is used in the semiconductor industry not so much for the properties of silicon, but because of the physical, chemical, and electrical properties of its native oxide, SiO 2 .

3 reflects the polarity of these pn -diodes. 3 An n -channel MOS transistor. 01 m m). A typical transistor length, L = 2 l . The bulk may be either the substrate or a well. The diodes represent pn -junctions that must be reverse-biased. The current flowing in the transistor is current (amperes) = charge (coulombs) per unit time (second). 1) We can express the current in terms of the total charge in the channel, Q (imagine taking a picture and counting the number of electrons in the channel at that instant).
