Abstract

In this paper, the implementation of a compact, wideband, single layer, and simple RF rectifier design is discussed. The proposed rectifier configuration is based on the coplanar waveguide transmission line. The rectifier is constructed using the voltage doubler circuit in conjunction with a broadband matching network. To obtain a small circuit size, the matching circuit is constituted with a series dual-inductive lumped element. The overall rectifier dimensions are very compact 22.5times 31, mm2. In order to accurately characterize the rectifier performance, the electromagnetic and harmonic balance simulations are conducted using the Agilent, ADS software. The comparison shows good agreement between the simulation and measurement results. For instance, the peak measured efficiency is 74.8% at 10-dBm RF input power and the corresponding simulated value is 75% with a terminal load of 1 kOmega . The efficient frequency range is extending from 0.1 to 2.5 GHz, with an efficiency of more than 45% at input power 10 dBm.
