Miniature wireless sensors with long lifetimes enable new applications for medical diagnosis, infrastructure monitoring, military surveillance, and environmental sensing among many other applications in a growing field. Sensor miniaturization leads to decreased on-sensor energy capacity, and lifetime requirements further constrain the sensor's power budget. To enable millimeter-scale wireless sensors with lifetimes of months to years, a new class of low-power circuit techniques is required. Wireless sensors collect and digitize environmental data before processing and transmitting the data wirelessly to base stations or other sensor nodes. Recent low-power advances for each of these functions shed light on how ubiquitous sensing can become a reality.
