A 0.5-V 1.56-mW 5.5-GHz RF transceiver IC module with J-shaped folded monopole antenna


This paper presents a low-power RF-CMOS-transceiver IC-module with small antennas on a printed circuit board (PCB). Active mixer-first architecture is employed on a receiver for achieving both acceptable sensitivity and lower power. We also show strategies for lowering power consumption of the transmitter and the phase locked loop (PLL): a high-gain… (More)
