This paper addresses backscatter communications as a new paradigm for Internet of Things (IoT) sensor wireless solutions. The paper clearly presents the history background of the technology and then makes a summary of the more recent developments form several groups around the world, with emphasis in US and Europe groups. The analysis done in this paper will address circuit and physical layer approaches for such a solution and its real implementations, having in mind IoT sensors for long range high speed communications.
