In this paper, we present a wireless and electrode-less Quartz Crystal Microbalance (WE-QCM) sensor measurement system. The QCM characteristics are measured using a network analyzer and microstrip antennas and the results are modeled by Butterworth Van Dyke (BVD) electrical equivalent circuit model. The WE-QCM model and the proposed energy detection transceiver based wireless measurement system are simulated using analog mixed signal (AMS) tools. The mixed signal simulations show that less than 0.5 kHz sensitivity in frequency variations can be achieved with the proposed system model.
