Many have asked me about writing a book, and I am still considering it. I'll make a final choice after I finish posting everything.

Thanks for your support.

HI Ivan,

 

I have gone through most of your 10 part series on Battery technologies.

It would be nice to have all this content converted into a book.

Do you have any such plans?

Max,

I was doing backscatter communications when I worked at Time Domain. The available power is quite limited (in contrast to the author's statement), and obviously depends on the size of the antenna. It doesn't take much energy to short-out and open an antenna, to provide the reflection, and this is what I believe they were trying to say. The strength of the reflecting signal depends on: antenna size (gain), distance, path loss (other scatter sources and blocking materials), and noise (jammers, etc). By the way, backscatter comms works with other radio signals that are available, as well.

antedeluvian :  How would I go about obtaining one...


Sometimes I have to resort to a Google search using the chemistry as keyword, to reveal the as-yet unknown supplier. Too often, I don't even have a part number, and so this helps with that too. Additionally, There are companies out there that can make a pack out of cells that you supply, or they buy for you and include in the pack cost.

Hi Ivan

Let's say I thought one of the exotic battery chemistries that you cover in this series was suitable for my application. How would I go about obtaining one (or in the case of a primary battery an ongoing supply)? Do you make it yourself or are some battery manufacturers happy to put together one for you?

@Ivan: Did you see this article about researchers promoting battery-free Wi-Fi technology?

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
