—The drive for cost reduction has led to the use of CMOS technology in the implementation of highly integrated radios. This paper presents a single-chip 5-GHz fully integrated direct conversion transceiver for IEEE 802.11a WLAN systems, manufactured in 0.18-m CMOS. The IC features an innovative system architecture which takes advantage of the computing(More)
Novel techniques for the power efficient synthesis of sum-of-product computations are presented. Simple and efficient heuristics for scheduling and assignment are described. Different partly static cost functions are proposed to drive the synthesis tasks. The proposed cost functions target the power consumption either in the buses connecting the functional(More)
