A sub-10mW 2Mbps BFSK transceiver at 1.35 to 1.75GHz.
June 3, 2007
This work presents the design and measurement of a 2Mbps BFSK transceiver at 1.35 to 1.75GHz for use in wireless sensor node applications. The receiver is a direct conversion architecture and has a sensitivity of -74dBm at 2Mbps and consumes 8.0mW. The transmitter generates orthogonal BFSK modulation through the use of digital pre-emphasis of the synthesizer frequency control word and consumes 9.7mW including the power amplifier. The transmitter delivers >3dBm of output power for a total transmitter power efficiency of 23% and a transmitter FOM of 4.85nJ/bit at 2Mbps.
