In this chapter, a battery-less wireless sensor system is proposed, which is called the Power REduced MonolithIc Sensor System (PREMISS), based on monolithic sensors with functions of wireless power receiving, wireless sensing, and wireless data transfer functions. In the PREMISS system, a base-station transmits RF energy and information to sensor nodes via pencil beams and receives the information back from those sensor nodes. In this chapter, the system analysis of the PREMISS system is presented.
