In wireless body area network (WBAN) applications, wireless sensors are used to collect, monitor and transmit vital signs and other medical information. In such scenarios, it is critical to maximize the autonomy, while satisfying application performance. A unique platform for introduction of such ultra-low power technology components is an electrocardiography (ECG) patch for BAN applications, and is taken in this work as an example to illustrate the development of an ultra low-power transceiver.
