An Ultra Low Power, Compact UWB Receiver With Automatic Threshold Recovery in 65 Nm CMOS

With the FCC opening a broad spectrum of 3.1 - 10.6 GHz for the unlicensed use of UWB communication low power radios employing IR-UWB (Impulse Radio - UWB) have become ubiquitous in sensor networks, medical and other applications requiring low fidelity data transfer. Often, these applications, running on scavenged energy, target communication over 1-10 m distances and focus on minimizing power consumption by trading off complexity. UWB communication can broadly be classified into two types : FM-UWB, a two-step FM based approach which operates similar to narrow band radio and IR-UWB where the information is encoded in short pulses (
