A fully passive RFID temperature sensor SoC with an accuracy of ±0.4 ◦C (3σ) from 0 ◦C to 125 ◦C

  • This paper presents a fully passive 13.56 -MHz RFID temperature sensor system-on-chip. Its power management unit operates over a large temperature range using a zero temperature coefficient bias source. On-chip temperature sensing is accomplished with low-voltage, low-power CMOS circuitry, and time-domain signal processing. Two readout commands have been defined to study supply noise sensitivity: 1) standard readout, where just a single set of data is transferred to the reader and 2) serial readout, where several sets of data are sent one after the other to the reader. With the standard readout command, the sensor suffers from interference from the RFID command packet and outputs interference as well, while the sensor outputs no interference with the serial readout command. Measurements show that sensor resolution with serial readout is improved by a factor of approximately 16 compared to standard readout. The chip was fabricated in a standard 0.35-μm CMOS technology and chip-on-board mounted to a tuned RFID transponder coil on an aluminum core FR4 PCB substrate. Real time wireless temperature sensing has been demonstrated with a commercial HF RFID reader. With a two-point calibration, the SoC achieves a 3σ sensing accuracy of ±0.4 ◦C from 0◦C to 125 ◦C.
