This talk is intended to highlight key market trends and new applications from low frequency upto sub-THz bands where wireless transceivers and systems are needed and make a difference. Various use-cases, standards under discussion and ratification will be looked at.
Technical challenges associated with implementing these systems in nano-meter digital CMOS technologies will be discussed. The economics of going to these advanced processes for new capabilities will force certain architecture choices for RF systems to optimize unit cost and power consumption. This presentation will highlight some of these choices.
