Wireless information and power transfer: from scientific hypothesis to engineering practice

Zhang, Rong, Maunder, Robert G. and Hanzo, Lajos (2015) Wireless information and power transfer: from scientific hypothesis to engineering practice [in special issue: Energy Harvesting Communications] IEEE Communications Magazine, pp. 1-12. (doi:10.1109/MCOM.2015.7180515).

Record type: Article


Recently, there has been substantial research interest in the subject of Simultaneous Wireless Information and
Power Transfer (SWIPT) owing to its cross-disciplinary appeal and its wide-ranging application potential, which
motivates this overview. More explicitly, we provide a brief survey of the state-of-the-art and introduce several
practical transceiver architectures that may facilitate its implementation. Moreover, the most important link-level
as well as system-level design aspects are elaborated on, along with a variety of potential solutions and research
ideas. We envision that the dual interpretation of Radio Frequency (RF) signals creates new opportunities as well
as challenges requiring substantial research, innovation and engineering efforts.
