Title: Design and Measurement of Radio Frequency Circuits for Ultra Low Power Short Range Links.

Date: 2009-2011.

Funding: Fondo Clemente Estable (FCE-ANII).

Abstract: The Microelectronics Group of Instituto de Ingenería Eléctrica has been working in the development of a design methodology for low power radio frequency integrated circuits. This methodology is based on exploiting the operation of the MOS transistor in the moderate inversion region, which is viable at higher frequencies as channel length is scaled. This project, by supporting the purchase of a vector network analyzer, allows to refine and validate the techniques being developped by, among others, allowing to quantify and separate the impedance adaptation effects of external components, printed circuit board, packaging and integrated circuit, as well as to fully characterize the modules in frequency. This will improve the available capacity in the country for performing radio frequency design and measurement as well as to complete the validation of the proposed methodology.
