Compact digital receiver suitable for Bluetooth 5 and beyond

Compact digital receiver suitable for Bluetooth 5 and beyond
A novel phase-tracking receiver bringing further power and cost reduction for the next generations of Bluetooth and IEEE802.15.4 radio chips has been developed by imec and Holst Centre (initiated by imec and TNO). It supports supply voltages as low as 0.85V and consumes less than 1.6mW peak. A low power antenna impedance detection technique enhances radio performance, especially for wearables or implantable applications. The ongoing evolution towards an intuitive IoT has created unprecedented opportunities in various application domains.
