IMT30-18 Master Thesis: Modelisation and implementation of a wireless power transfer circuit for a micro device

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) - KIT - Helmholtz Association

Karlsruhe, Germany

Work group:

Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT)

Area of research:

Diploma & Master Thesis

Job description:

Accurate pressure sensors are much needed in the Vacuum Industry (food industry, semiconductor industry). A wireless compact sensor combining the Pirani principle and Surface Acoustic Waves has been designed and simulated.

This sensor prevents leakage due to wires and can be operated easily thanks to its portability.

A prototype using microfabrication technology is being finalized.

This work is part of the Marie Curie research project MIGRATE and aims to engage a motivated student in the development and experimental validation of the power transfer circuit. This work is part of the development of a new product that will be commercialized.

The work includes:

Design and simulation of the coupling circuit for a wireless receiver coilManufacturing the circuitTesting and optimizing the wireless power transfer circuit
