Financement envisagé: EUROPE
The thesis work will take place within the framework of the European project innpaper and consist of the design of multiple energy recovery circuits that can manage and optimize energy from solar, vibrational or RF sources. This circuit will be able to interface the various printed modules on paper realized in the project: screens, sensors, battery. The work will require ultra-low power analog design work as well as the digital block design to control these systems so that the most relevant power source according to the environment is selected.
Description of the subject:
The "Innpaper" project concerns the study and design of innovative communicating objects intended for health, gathering on the same paper support, various electronic functions making it possible to ensure the traceability, the measurement of physical parameters and the power supply. These objects will have to meet the very demanding requirements of the market, in particular the low cost, the low consumption and the minimal size while remaining highly recyclable (paper). The development of these systems on flexible support requires the implementation of new technologies from the world of printing and specific integrated circuit compatible with printing resolution. Energy supply is at the heart of the problem of deployment of these connected objects. Where mains connection or battery replacement is not feasible, the recent improvement in printed energy storage makes it possible to remotely power objects by accumulating energy during periods of inactivity. It is thus necessary to harvest from the environment the energy used to supply these communicating electronic systems.
The person: We seek application from national and international students who have graduated in electronic, preferably with a background in radiofrequencies electronic and/or microcontroller. The successful applicant will be given the opportunity to work in an exciting environment with national and international collaborations.
