This brief presents an on-off LC oscillator-based ultrawideband impulse radio (UWB-IR) transmitter for long-range application. A thorough theoretical analysis of the pulse generation is provided. Implemented in a 0.18-mum CMOS, the transmitter works in the UWB lower band of 3-5 GHz and consumes an ultralow average power of 236 muW at 1.8-V power supply. UWB pulses with a bandwidth of 2 GHz and 10-dB sidelobe suppression are generated. The transmitter can deliver a large differential output swing of 4.9 V under 100-Omega load with the highest power efficiency of 25.4% to date. It is targeted for wireless sensor network (WSNs) and wireless personal area network (WPAN) applications.
