This paper describes a CMOS interface for short-range wireless sensor networks (CMOS-SRWSN interface). The sensor interface is composed of a sensor readout, electronics for processing and control, a memory, a radio-frequency CMOS transceiver for operation in the 2.4-GHz industrial, scientific, and medical bands, and a planar antenna. The receiver has a sensitivity of -60 dBm and consumes 6.3 mW from a 1.8-V supply. The transmitter delivers an output power of 0 dBm with a power consumption of 11.2 mW. The application of the CMOS-SRWSN interface is in the automotive industry for the reduction of cables and to support the information, communication, and entertainment systems in cars.
