We are organising a short course in the 18th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP). The short course will be delivered by Dr Yuan Ding and Professor Wei Gong, on the topic of ‘Radio Frequency and Physical-layer Designs for Backscatter Communications‘. The short course will be held in the afternoon on 22nd March, 2023 in Glasgow.
The first section will present the basic principle of backscatter communications, and especially the challenges and recent development on ambient backscatter communications. The radio frequency design examples, as well as prototypes, will be discussed. A demo on either FM backscatter communications or WiFi backscatter communications will be shown lively.
The second section will be dedicated to Bluetooth Low Energy backscatter communications, from excitor design, tag designs, and commercial BLE compatible physical-layer designs. Some live demonstrations will be presented in the short course.
