Latest Advances in High-Performance SWIPT Combined with Backscattering

In recent years, research focused on achieving the optimal balance between wireless power transfer and downlink data communications. In this talk, an overview will be presented on the latest advances in the design of modulated signals, tailored to reach such a balance. Next to the downlink, also energy-efficient uplink communications is essential for an IoT device. Therefore, the talk will also discuss developments and trade-offs in node architecture and signal design to achieve high-quality SWIPT combined with backscattering.
