An ultra-low-power RF envelope-detection radio has been designed for low-power short-range wireless applications. It introduces an interference rejection technique that improves the in-band selectivity by 24.5 dB. The transmitter adopts the power-efficient direct-modulation architecture, and the receiver maintains the simplicity and low power consumption of(More)
We present a digitally-controlled class-D power amplifier (PA) utilizing a new conduction angle calibration technique for harmonic suppression. The optimum conduction angle is derived to minimize chosen harmonics. The calibration circuit adjusts the conduction angle by changing the voltage transfer characteristic of the input buffer. Operating at 2.4GHz,(More)
This paper presents an ultra-low power wireless transceiver specialized for but not limited to medical implantable applications. It operates at the 402-405-MHz medical implant communication service band, and also supports the 420-450-MHz industrial, scientific, and medical band. Being IEEE 802.15.6 standard compliant with additional proprietary modes, this(More)
The newly proposed phase-prediction counter-based ADPLL has achieved a wireless standard-compliant performance at ultra-low power consumption. The digital-to-time converter (DTC) is the key enabler but is nonlinearity can easily create fractional spurs. This paper analyzes the effect of the DTC nonlinearity on in-band fractional spurs and proposes a method(More)
