A flexible energy detection IR-UWB receiver for RFID and WSN
2010 (English)Other (Other academic)
This paper presents an energy detection impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) receiver for radio frequency identification (RFID) and wireless sensor networks (WSN) applications. As opposed to coherent receivers, it uses simple square-integrate samplers, that allows low complexity and low power implementations. This prototype is composed by an analog front-end and timing-critical digital blocks in UMC 90nm CMOS process, and an Altera Cyclone III FPGA development kit for back-end processing, connected by a high speed mezzanine card (HSMC). Thanks to the flexible back-end on FPGA, the receiver is featured by high programmability and multi-mode operation which adopts a wide range of pulse rates and data rates, different modulation and synchronization schemes, and various channel environments.
