This paper presents the principles of a Sampled Analog Signal Processor (SASP) dedicated to Software Radio mobile device. Many technological bottlenecks are to be overcome. The idea is to design a discrete analog signal processor to challenge theses bottlenecks. The main issue associated with the A/D conversion is thus avoided. The SASP aims to select a(More)
This paper presents an ultra low-power integrated interface for capacitive and resistive MEMS and sensors, intended for use in biomedical applications. The interface encodes the sensed data in the time between transmitted UWB pulses: this reduces the number of transmitted bits and benefits the power consumption. The interface was designed and fabricated in(More)
— The RF transceivers architectures are to integrate the concept of Sotware Radio. But, in the case of mobile terminal, hard constraints are imposed by the factor of mobility. Low power and very complex circuits are claimed by the telecommunication industry. Classical architectures are no more sufficient to challenge this goal. New systems are thus(More)
