The interest in low energy, low data-rate communication is growing steadily, e.g., for use in sensor networks, body area networks, localization. The high energy efficiency required for these applications can only be reached by carefully balancing transceiver complexity, power consumption and performance. The quadrature analog correlation (QAC) receiver is an impulse radio ultra-wide-band (IR-UWB) receiver that pursues this optimal tradeoff. In this paper, the QAC receiver is studied into detail… CONTINUE READING
