Today’s high technology marketplace demands more capability and reliability from wireless technologies, especially low-cost and low-power wireless communications with relatively low data rates. These types of applications are used in home automation systems, games and automotive controls, and the requirements for these radio transceiver systems make a highly-integrated CMOS implementation an obvious choice. The ZigBee wireless technology and its underlying IEEE 802.15.4 standard is an ideal low-cost, low-power wireless solution.
