The transceiver is a fully integrated radio solution for ISM band low data rate communication, low power and low complexity short-range radio frequency transmission in a wireless personal area network. The concept used is silicon proven in mature 0.18 μm CMOS technologies and can easily be transferred to other CMOS technologies.
