Abstract: The aim of this work is, on one hand, to review the state of the art of the architectures and diodes used in radio-frequency energy harvesting systems, the idea here is to review the most recent works, as well as their characteristics, which include frequency, type of diode used, topology, maximum efficiency and corresponding power, and on the other hand to carry out simulations to determine the most appropriate case for any further work in the field. After having determined the most common topologies, we used the main known radio-frequency diodes to characterize them in a first step, clearly a process of comparing the results of the simulations of the different topologies is done by initially considering an identical frequency. and afterward determine the effect of frequency band on their conversion efficiency.
