Putting the Software Radio on a Low-Calorie Diet

Modern software-defined radios are large, expensive, and
power-hungry devices and this, we argue, hampers their more
widespread deployment and use, particularly in low-power,
size-constrained application settings like mobile phones and
sensor networks. To rectify this problem, we propose to
put the software-defined radio on a diet by redesigning it
around just two core chips – an integrated RF transceiver
and a Flash-based, mixed-signal FPGA. Modern transceivers
integrate almost all RF front-end functions while emerging
