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)
Several advances have been done in wireless body area networks for bio-monitoring, as confirmed by the fine tuning of ad-hoc standards for networking, controlling and managing a distributed sensor platform around the human body. Efficient wireless networks are becoming commercially available for several applications. In spite of that, sets of(More)
UWB technology (3.1 to 10.6GHz) allows new applications for both data communication and sensing (FCC, reference in [1]). Due to their potential in terms of resolution and extremely low level of EIRP spectral density (< -41.3dBm/MHz, see mask in Fig. 2.4.1) [1], UWB radars are very attractive for a large set of civil and military sensing applications, as(More)
The present status of the project aimed at the realization of an innovative wearable system-on-chip UWB radar for the cardiopulmonary monitoring is presented. The overall system consists of a wearable wireless interface including a fully integrated UWB radar for the detection of the heart beat and breath rates, and a IEEE 802.15.4 ZigBee low-power radio(More)
