About this book


This book explores the design of ultra-low-power radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), with communication distances ranging from a few centimeters to a few meters. Such radios have unique challenges compared to longer-range, higher-powered systems.
As a result, many different applications are covered, ranging from body-area networks to transcutaneous implant communications and Internet-of-Things devices. A mix of introductory and cutting-edge design techniques and architectures which facilitate each of these applications are discussed in detail. Specifically, this book covers:


Body-area Networks FBAR-based Transceivers Internet-of-Things Pulsed Ultra-wideband Radios Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Radios for Medical Implants Superregenerative Radios Ultra-Low-Power Short-Range Radios Ultra-Low-Power Wake-up Radios
