Ultra-low power radio transceiver for wireless sensor networks

The objective of this thesis is to present the design and implementation of ultra-low power radio transceivers at microwave frequencies, which are applicable to wireless sensor network (WSN) and, in

Driving and Testing Crystal-free Radios for a Basic End-to-End Transmission

This work proofs the feasibility of a radio transmission with a high phase noise profile frequency reference and thus the design of monolithic sensor nodes, and the demodulation structure based on a PLL revealed the ability to track frequency instabilities.

Approaches to Low Power Radio Design

It makes sense to have a closer look at what constraints typical radio architectures have that prevent power from scaling in low data rate applications, since Shannon’s law governs the limit on the energy efficiency of radio communication and link margin vis-a-vis the channel capacity.
