A 2.4-GHz-Low-Power CMOS RF Transmitter for IEEE 802.15.4 Standard
ABSTRACT
This paper presents the experimental results of a low-power RF transmitter for 2.4-GHz-band IEEE 802.15.4 standard in 0.18-μm CMOS technology. In order to make an adaptive RF transmitter, several factors must be considered. The most important factors are performances, power consumption, output power, noise factor, and cost. The RF transmitter comprises a quadrature passive mixer, and a power amplifier. The proposed RF transmitter consumes only 10.8-mW under a supply voltage of 1.8-V.
