Electrical Engineering
Advisor: Prof. Pister
Research Interests: Radio frequency integrated circuits Wireless Communication Low power monolithic integration

BIOGRAPHY
Filip received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and the B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He joined the Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center in 2013 as a member of Professor Kris Pister's research group. He works on radio frequency integrated circuit design for the single chip mote project.

Single Chip Mote [BPN803]
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a natural evolution of computing. CMOS technology enabled the
network of computers that provided a platform for creating social networks. We are just seeing
the early stages of another transition point in technology and entering into a new era where
computing, sensing, and communication is essentially becoming disposable. The microsystem
serves as a platform that allows us to embed wireless connectivity into everyday objects or
serves as a brain for walking and flying microrobots. The lifetime, robustness, profile, and
cost of these microsystems play a critical role to enable these emerging applications.
Therefore, a single chip mote hardware platform is developed to address these unmet needs from
the current existing hardware platforms. The system-on-chip (SoC) is architected from the
bottom-up to meet the new use case and performance requirements of energy constrained
environments with limited energy capacity e.g. batteryless operation from harvested energy or
operation from printed batteries. The project seeks to reduce the active radio power by a
factor of 10, reduce the overall system cost and profile of a microsystem by eliminating
external components (e.g. crystal frequency reference) that are typically needed for a fully
functioning wireless sensor node.
