High efficiency UWB pulse generator for ultra-low-power applications

Abstract : This paper presents the design of a fully integrated ultra-low-power Ultra Wide Band (UWB) pulse generator. The circuit is designed and optimized for low rate and localization applications. This UWB transmitter is based on the impulse response filter method in order to achieve high energy sub-nanosecond pulses. The circuit has been integrated in a ST-Microelectronics CMOS 0.13 mu m technology with a supply voltage of 1.2 V on a die area of 0.56 mm(2). A power manager is used to reduce the power leakages to 3.91 mu W which gives a power consumption of 3.98 Mw at 10 kb/s. The measured dynamic energy consumed per pulse is 68 pJ and the measured energy of the emitted pulse is 2.15 pJ.
