The Internet of Things (IoT) and its applications demand for solutions for small and low-power communication devices. Overcoming the drawbacks of UHF radio frequency identification (RFID) a shift of the backscatter communication principle to mm-wave frequencies is desirable. With the significant reduction of the transponder size and wider communication bandwidth, many new applications become possible. Demonstrating the feasibility, we implemented a fully functional MMID system in the E-band. Both, the base station and the transponder are investigated and their performance is presented in a system context.
