Ultra Wideband Tranceiver for Respiration/ Bio-radar Sensing

This invention demonstrates the frequency diversity radar sensing on a novel CMOS integrated UWB RF front-end that utilizes the full UWB frequency band (3-10 GHz). The advantage of using integrated CMOS UWB technology in biomedical sensing is that this technology provides reduced power, reduced cost, and small area solutions with improved accurate and reliable performance. This invention can be used for constant monitoring of infants, breathing pattern monitoring for radiation therapy, hospital patients, real-time monitoring of highway long-haul drivers that could fall asleep, and other people facing sudden death syndrome. Other applications include contact-less respiration/heart rate monitoring in fitness center.
