This paper presents an ultra-low power miniaturized single chip transceiver operating in the ISM band at 2.4GHz. Targeting low power and minimum die size, while excluding RF-options and minimizing the count of external components for low-cost, asks for appropriate architectural choices to obtain high performance. Fast PLL locking and immediate RX-TX turn… CONTINUE READING
