Patrick Mercier and Anantha Chandrakasan have published a new book exploring the design of ultra-low-power radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) that operate over distances ranging from a few centimeters to a few meters. The book features contributions from leading universities (UCSD, MIT, UW, Michigan, Georgia Tech, and more) and companies (Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and more) that describe bleeding-edge techniques to achieve ultra-low-power communication over short-range links. Many different applications are covered, ranging from body-area networks to transcutaneous implant communications and smart-appliance sensor networks. Various design techniques are explained to facilitate each of these applications.
