Imec developing RF chips that use 10x less power than Bluetooth

Posted on Tuesday, June 08 2010 @ 05:27:35 CEST by

EE Times reports research group Imec is developing short-range 2.4GHz RF transceivers that require ten times less power than today's Bluetooth and Zigbee chips.
Imec demonstrated discrete blocks here Monday (June 7) capable of sending 1,024 Kbytes/second over five meters while consuming less than one milliwatt.

The technology could enable body-area network devices that last for up to six weeks, compared to today's devices that last about five days. "This is exactly what we need to go into long term monitoring of patients," said Bert Gyselinckx, general manager of Imec's Human++ program.

Body area networks are seen as key components for next-generation health care devices that monitor patients continuously at home.
