Ultra Low Power Wireless Communications

Amongst other focuses Zarlink Semiconductor specializing in ultra low power communications. Its technology is mostly applied in advanced health-care products. An interesting application of its low power technology is a non-invasive wireless endoscope, were a low power RF transmitter is placed in a swallowable camera capsule. This capsule transmits images of the patients’ digestive tract which after some image processing can revile any pathologies and diseases that the patient might have. This is a great demonstration of how low power design has a direct impact on physical device size.
