2017 Austrochip Workshop on Microelectronics (Austrochip)
This paper reviews trends for ultra-low-power wireless transceiver system and integrated circuit design under the perspective of using cost-effective CMOS technology nodes. These efficient transceiver structures typically find application in devices such as fitness monitors and other wearable healthcare devices, Internet of Things (IoT) devices and generic sensor nodes. A brief overview of State-of-the-Art (SoA) architectures, techniques, and performance metrics of ultra-low-power transmitter and receiver structures is presented. The often conflicting demands of communication range, data rate, reliability, and energy consumption are examined and a typical case study of a transceiver for medical sensor nodes is presented.
