An ultra-low wake-on radio receiver for Wireless Sensor Networks

An ultra-low power wake-on receiver has been designed, simulated, implemented and tested. This receiver has been developed for Wireless Sensor Network exploting the sleep mode of the nodes to reduce the average power consumption.

There are some wake-on devices in the literature, but they most lack on flexibility and power consumption. Therefore this receiver has been designed for multiple scenarios to make it easily integrable in any Wireless Sensor Network. A prototype was implemented in PCB using standard components and testing the prototype provides very good operating results, reducing the power consumption of a node up to 1000 times.
