C5.4 - WiseNET: an ultra low-power concept for Wireless Sensor Networks

J.-D. Decotignie, C. Enz, V. Peiris & M. Huebner
The WiseNET system includes an ultra low-power system-on-chip (SoC) hardware platform, WiseMAC, a low power medium access control protocol (MAC) dedicated to duty-cycled radios and a cluster-tree routing protocol. These elements have been designed to meet the specific requirements of wireless sensor networks and are particularly well suited to ad-hoc and hybrid networks. The WiseNET radio offers dual-band operation (434-MHz and 868-MHz) and runs from a single 1.5-V battery. It consumes only 2.5-mW in receive...
