Wireless Networks: Radios Go Wide

IME researchers have developed a low power fully integrated ultra wide bandwidth (UWB) solution to support both communication and localization applications. With the in-built RF transceiver and digital PHY in the UWB system-on-chip (SoC), a smaller device footprint can be attained. The low power consumption, energy efficiency (TX 0.92nJ/b and RX 5.3nJ/b) and maximum spectrum usage are among the most notable features of the proposed UWB SoC system.
