The Workshop on Crystal-Free/-Less Radio and System-based Research for IoT

The future of IoT is envisioned to have trillion-node scale deployment in every corner of the earth, ultimately realizing the smart dust goal. This requires miniaturization of the IoT devices down to the chip scale. Such IoT devices eliminate all traditional off-chip components required on PCB, e.g., crystal oscillators, to achieve ultra-low power performance in an ultra-miniaturized form factor. Beside the ASIC devices, system-based research is an important sector to realize this vision as well. Research ideas with new system designs or innovations using specific electronics will accelerate its adoption in real-world applications.

The CrystalFreeIoT workshop is one of the outcomes of the “Workshop on Crystal-Free Radios, Chip-Scale Wireless Systems and Swarms” held in 2023 in Paris, France. Tons of ideas have been discussed during that workshop. The goal of this workshop is to have a collection of state-of-art research work around crystal-free/-less radio and system-level research for IoT applications.

CrystalFreeIoT workshop is a full-day event, co-located at CPS-IoT Week 2024 in Hong Kong, on May 14 2024. It will start with a brief introduction about the aims of the workshop, followed by a keynote on the topic of Crystal-Free/-Less Radio and IoT system. The remaining morning and afternoon sessions will consist of paper presentations. A poster/demo session will be arranged around dinner time with light food provided.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you!
