    The project deliverables are listed in the following: Dualmode CWPAN/ZigBee RFIC Transceiver Architecture and System Design • Dualmode reconfiguration design • Direct conversion architecture design • System and modules specifications definition • System interfaces and interfaces between modules definition CWPAN/ZigBee Transceiver Modules IP • Modules IP design in terms of schematics, simulation and layout • Modules include receiver modules, transmitter modules, frequency synthesizer modules, SPI and miscellaneous modules. • Modules IP evaluation results CWPAN/ZigBee Transceiver RFIC • Functional transceiver RFIC engineering samples fabricated in 0.18um RF CMOS technology. A few silicon tapeouts are planned to verify the transceiver RFIC. Demo Board • Demo board for the transceiver RFIC to work or test in a platform Final reports of design documentation, interface definition (including SPI interface control) and integration guide • All documentations which are necessary to license our technology and IP to external partners, including design, interface and integration. Patent Applications • Two patents in the areas of direct conversion architecture, DC offset cancellation, dual mode LNA, PA and VCO modules design and implementation Industry contribution and sponsorship Our project partner Vinno Technologies has committed RMB900K contribution to this full project including cash of RMB800K and in-kind of RMB100K. We will actively look for customers, and obtain commitment of industry contribution for at least 10% of total budget before end of ninth month after project kickoff. We will continue to engage with customers for IP licensing in the rest of project duration and after the end of project. The goal is to promote the technology and project deliverables and support industries in Hong Kong, PRD and China.

    本专案旨在开发应用於CWPAN/ZigBee的双模射频收发器晶片。CWPAN是低速率中国无线个域网国家标準,同时CWPAN已成为国际标準的一部分,IEEE802.15.4C工作组专为CWPAN而设立。CWPAN标準於2007年2月正式立项,计画於2008年2月完成。CWPAN工作於特批的780MHz频段,数据率为250kbps。国际ZigBee也是低速率无线个域网标準,它工作於ISM频段,欧洲868MHz, 美国915MHz和世界範围的2.4GHz。本专案将开发双模射频收发器晶片,它能够在一个晶片上支持CWPAN和ZigBee两个标準,其中,CWPAN工作於780MHz, ZigBee工作於868/915MHz。本专案将会设计射频收发器系统和其中的每个模组,模组从射频前端到ADC/DAC,数目在19个左右,最终会提交验證和生产於0.18微米CMOS制程的集成射频收发器晶片及知识产权。我们会采用系统性方法来实施本专案,从系统级仿真和验證,到模组级设计,实现和验證,再到射频收发器的集成。我们计画了四次矽流片来测试验證双模收发器晶片。 本项目的立项是由巨大的市场机遇和其蕴含的技术创新驱动。CWPAN/ZigBee有著很多应用,比如无线感测器网路,家庭网路,商业和工业控制,楼宇自动化和自动读表。2007年9月,IEEE802.15主席Bob Heile预计ZigBee市场年複合增长率会达到100%到150%,到2010年左右每年的出货量会达到3亿。中国是世界上最大的市场之一,并且中国拥有自己的国标CWPAN。和我们的合作夥伴一道,ASTRI是第一个开发CWPAN晶片的公司,而我们的合作夥伴是CWPAN标準的先驱者,这赋予了我们领先於其他竞争者的巨大时间优势和市场机遇。我们的双模收发器晶片和知识产权不仅适用於中国,也可被世界其他地方使用。我们将会转让我们的知识产权给无线晶片公司,SoC设计公司,MCU公司和现有的ZigBee晶片公司。
