A Self-Duty-Cycled and Synchronized UWB Pulse-Radio Receiver SoC With Automatic Threshold-Recovery Based Demodulation

A fully self-duty-cycled and synchronized UWB pulse-radio receiver SoC targeted at low-data-rate communication is presented. The receiver uses pulse-radio UWB in the 3.6-5 GHz band to achieve a high energy efficiency. The proposed architecture employs a a demodulator with an automatic analog threshold-recovery and an all-digital clock-and-data-recovery… CONTINUE READING
