Marie Curie Actions funded fellowship Micropower Wireless Receivers

Please note that the job is no longer active!

In multi-standard wireless terminals such as Smart Phones, the reduction of power consumption is becoming an increasingly important way to maximize the battery lifespan. The issue becomes even more critical if we consider applications such as Sensor Network, in which the battery is supposed to last much longer. The present research aims at developing new wireless terminal RF front-end solutions so that blocks having the same function (i.e. Low Noise, Amplifier, Mixer e Filtro di Base Band) are able to draw on the same polarization power source. Furthermore, though single ended, the suggested topology will be strongly resistant to out band interferers and directly connectable to the antenna without the need of a SAW Filter. To do so, Bluetooth and Zig Bee standards will be taken into account.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
