This paper presents a 900-2400 MHz AC-DC rectifier circuit for radio frequency (RF) energy harvesting. The proposed circuit consists of a rectifier and charge pump. The multi-stage NMOS RF-DC rectifier circuit is designed to convert the AC signal to DC signal while the charge pump helps to amplify the DC amplitude. The proposed circuits are designed and simulated using CMOS 0.13-μm technology. The simulation results show that the proposed circuit able to produce 2.9 V DC voltage at 10 kΩ load with an input voltage of 150 mV.
