    Self Oscillating Rectifier

    Hi,

    Do anyone know self oscillating rectifier?

    Re: Self Oscillating Rectifier

    Do you want to make a DC generator with no input and have it work by perpetual motion? You have an oscillator and rectify its output that is used to power the oscillator and maybe power a load? Impossible.
    It must have an external power supply to make up for losses. It wastes energy by making heat and it feeds energy to a load.

    Re: Self Oscillating Rectifier

    Hi Audioguru,

    i would like to design an AC-DC rectifier by applying this concept, where the charge will be store in a component before entering to the mosfet. Thus, the mosfet can function although the ambient RF is lower than Vth.

    Re: Self Oscillating Rectifier

    Audioguru, I think they mean a synchronous rectifier instead of self oscillating. Using a MOSFET as a synchronized switch to provide rectification.

    Re: Self Oscillating Rectifier

    Hi There, I just know that it is self-driven / self- power CMOS rectifier. DO you have any advise on this design?

    Re: Self Oscillating Rectifier

    I've never heard of such a thing and the only thing turned up by a search is this:
    http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/login...mber%3D7418063

    I'm not sure I would class it as a CMOS rectifier though.
