This article presents basic issues regarding design and development of a 60 GHz ultra-low power radio system for ambient intelligence (AmI) applications. It demonstrates the validity of choosing the 60 GHz frequency band to design low power radios by a mathematical model, and proposes an overview of a cross-layer optimization flow to minimize power dissipation. Moreover, a completed RF front-end architecture, i.e. the transmitter and the receiver, is simulated according to the proposed methodology. Crucial concerns, challenges and solutions are discussed based on it. Simulation results are given, which verify the theoretical conclusions of 120 pJ/bit power consumption.
