Power consumption and size are the most important challenges faced when designing radios for distributed wireless sensor networks (WSN). Reducing power consumption requires optimization across all the layers of the communication systems. Although the MAC layer plays a crucial role in the overall energy efficiency, the radio remains one of the bottleneck for implementing ultra low-power WSN. The power consumption of the radios available today does not allow for continuous operation and the radio… CONTINUE READING
