Advanced concepts for wireless technologies present a vision of technology that is embedded in our surroundings and practically invisible. From established radio techniques like GSM, 802.11 or Bluetooth to more emerging technologies, such as Ultra Wide Band and smart dust motes, a common denominator for future progress is the underlying integrated circuit technology. Wireless Technologies responds to the explosive growth of standard cellular radios and radically different wireless applications by presenting new architectural and circuit solutions engineers can use to solve modern design problems.
This reference addresses state-of-the art CMOS design in the
context of emerging wireless applications, including 3G/4G cellular
telephony, wireless sensor networks, and wireless medical
application. Written by top international experts specializing in
both the IC industry and academia, this carefully edited work
uncovers new design opportunities in body area networks, medical
implants, satellite communications, automobile radar detection, and
The book is divided into three sections: wireless system
perspectives, chip architecture and implementation issues, and
devices and technologies used to fabricate wireless integrated
circuits. Contributors address key issues in the development of
future silicon-based systems, such as scale of integration,
ultra-low power dissipation, and the integration of heterogeneous
circuit design style and processes onto one substrate.
Wireless sensor network systems are now being applied in critical
applications in commerce, healthcare, and security. This reference,
which contains 25 practical and scientifically rigorous articles,
provides the knowledge communications engineers need to design
innovative methodologies at the circuit and system level.
