Portable audio products have not yet seen a wireless headphone solution that has been widely accepted. The main reason for this is that power consumption for current solutions is too high. We present a solution the uses a sub-sampling receiver combined with Q-enhanced RF filtering and injection-locked LO generation to provide high performance with low power… CONTINUE READING
