    Abstract

    Abstract—This work describes a method of implementing a fully-integrated Ultra-Low Power (ULP) radio for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). This is achieved using a specific Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol, employing a dutycycled wake-up radio and a crystal-less clock generator, and an ad-hoc modulation scheme (Impulse Radio) with a bandwidth of 17.7 MHz in the 2.4 GHz - ISM band. The total average power consumption is expected to be less than 100 μW.
