A fully integrated CMOS transceiver tuned to 2.1 GHz consumes 46 mA in receive-mode and 47 mA in transmit-mode from a 2.7 V supply. The receiver achieves a sensitivity of -80 dBm at 0.1% BER, and an IIP3 of -7 dBm. The transmitter delivers a GFSK modulated spectrum at an output power of 5 dBm.
The support for automatic interoperation of software components can reduce cost and provide greater functionality. This paper describes a novel approach to software interoperation based on speciication sharing. Software components, called agents, provide machine processable descriptions of their capabilities and needs. Agents can be realized in diierent… (More)
Bluetooth is a communication protocol enabling low-cost, short-range radio links between mobile phones, mobile PCs, and other portable devices. The Bluetooth standard specifies a 2.4 GHz; frequency-hopped, spread-spectrum system that supports a data rate of 1 Mb/s. This paper describes a low-cost, low-power, and highly integrated solution for 2.4 GHz… (More)
1-INTRODUCTION ield Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have revolutionized digital systems design in the past two decades. Their programmability and fast time-to-market have made them very popular among designers. The arrival of multi million gate FPGAs and the availability of variety of system level features on them have made FPGAs an excellent design choice… (More)
