Abstract To exploit the true potential of ubiquitous connectivity at scale, wireless nodes in a sensor network need to have a long lifetime and low cost. To reduce the cost of a sensor node, complete system integration is needed, including communication, computation, sensing, and power management on a single integrated circuit with zero external components. Therefore, a Single Chip Mote sensor node is being developed that is intended to operate from harvested energy stored in an integrated printed battery. Low-power wireless communication plays a key role in extending the lifetime of a wireless sensor due to high active power consumption of the radio in comparison to the rest of the node. Traditional transceiver architectures also require off-chip components such as crystal oscillators and passives, which must be eliminated in order to enable a completely monolithic solution. The elimination of external components, combined with reduction in transceiver power consumption, will truly enable perpetual operation of wireless nodes at low-cost and hence realize the vision of ubiquitous connectivity at scale.
