    This project proposes an ultra low power RF IPs & SOC platform for BLE WBAN. It aims at developing an extremely low power integrated BLE SOC including body sensor network IPs, RF transceiver, digital baseband and a subset of the BLE protocol stack. This integrated BLE SOC can be used to develop demonstration modules for innovative WBAN applications. The project will take 18 months with a budget of 14.689M. The committed industrial contribution is 1.694M. It provides solid foundation and building blocks for local industry to develop cutting-edge WBAN products, with significant commercial potential and social benefits.
