—An energy detector designed in a 0.18μm CMOS technology and intended for a non-coherent impulse-radio UWB receiver is presented in this paper. The proposed circuit exploits the quadratic current characteristic of saturated MOS transistors to square input pulses that cover the whole UWB bandwidth. The integral is computed with a Gm-C architecture connected(More)
The system design of an integrated microwave imaging radar for the diagnostic screening of breasts cancer is presented. A custom integrated circuit implemented in a 65-nm CMOS technology and a pair of patch antennas realized on a planar laminate are proposed as the basic module of the imaging antenna array. The radar operates on the broad frequency range(More)
A fully integrated solution for rejecting the interference caused by Wireless Local Area Network transmissions in the 4.9–5.825-GHz band for ultra-wide-band (UWB) receivers is presented. Front-end prototypes implemented in a low cost 0.35m SiGe BiCMOS technology are used as a test vehicle to assess the effectiveness of the presented approach. The proposed(More)
