—A low-complexity fully integrated ultrawideband (UWB) monocycle pulse generator realized in 90-nm CMOS technology by ST-Microelectronics is presented. The circuit provides a monocycle pulse when activated by a negative edge of an external trigger signal provided by a microcontroller by exploiting the operating principle of nonlinear waveform shapers.

An ultra wideband (UWB) system-on-chip radar sensor for respiratory rate monitoring has been realized in 90 nm CMOS technology and characterized experimentally. The radar testchip has been applied to the contactless detection of the respiration activity of adult and baby. The field operational tests demonstrate that the UWB radar sensor detects the(More)
—This paper reports two complements on phase noise analysis and design of CMOS ring oscillators. In detail, it proposes an extension to current analytical methods for predicting flicker noise contribution to phase noise in differential CMOS ring oscillators. The results of the proposed analysis are compared with the existing methods and simulation results(More)
