This paper surveys recent research on IC designs for wireless applications. Recent advances in device technologies and system architectures are presented. Recent low power wireless systems, both from academia and from industry, are summarized. Circuit design techniques and challenges for low voltage and low power applications are discussed. RF performance and power trade-offs are addressed. Examples of common RF building blocks, e.g. LNA's and VCO's, designed for sub-1 V power supplies are presented.
