The Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC), now in its second decade, addresses the design, conception, and implementation of the next-generation integrated wireless systems in state-of-the-art CMOS (and related) technologies. The focus is on integrated circuit and system advances needed to enable a vision of truly ubiquitous wireless: including the realization of always-connected reliable networks through advanced spectrum utilization techniques, the design of energy-efficient high data-rate links at 60 GHz and above, the investigation of the boundaries of ultra low-energy wireless networks, and the exploration of the leading edge circuit techniques and components that make these systems possible.
