This lecture will provide an overview of various emerging wireless standards for low power IoT applications. The main focus of the lecture will be circuits and systems design consideration for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radios. A survey of emerging low power receivers based on coherent and sliding IF architectures will be presented. The lecture will include a deep dive into topics such as: two-point PLL modulation, power management, and circuit impairment study.



Imran Bashir (S’99 – M’09 – SM’17) received the B.S.E.E. (summa cum laude) degree from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2001 and the M.S.E.E. and Ph.D degree from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2008 and 2014. He joined Texas Instruments in 2002 and was elected the prestigious title of Group Member of Technical Staff in 2006. He played a key role in the productization of GSM/EDGE SoCs based on the Digital RF Processor (DRP) technology. During the Fall of 2015, he was a Senior Research Fellow at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at University College Dublin (UCD), Dublin, Ireland. He is currently working at Cypress Semiconductor Corp. and his research interests include digital PLLs, wideband modulators, polar transmitters, and low power wireless SoCs.
