Project description

The objective of the project is to modify a current satellite that uses a solar panel as a power source. By using a radio frequency energy harvester, the chip can possibly be used for research into the Internet of Things. By using PCB design tools and the schematic of the satellite, the researcher will attempt to remove the satellite and rewire the board to fit the harvester. If this is successful, versions of the board will be printed and utilized for research in the lab about the Internet of Things.
