This is Li Huang, responsible for the business development of imec’s ultra low power radios. imec is still working within the wake up radio, and collaborating with a big semiconductor company to commercialize it.
Thus, we can consider a two phase project. In the first phase, as an early access to future chips, imec can provide the demo boards for your evaluation. In the second phase, you can engage with imec’s partner to develop your final product.
Do you have any specs on the radio?

Mik: <obvious questions>
Thanks for your clarification. Imec’s radio has a continuous power consumption of 310uW (including AFE and DBB) with the sensitivity ~-70dBm. Assuming the crystal oscillator is shared with other and its power is not considered in the wake up radio, the power can be reduced to by half. Without power conversion unit, the power can be even lower. Do they meet your spec?
If you are interested, we can further set up a call to discuss the details. However, I am currently out of office and will be back on Feb. 10. It would be good if we can still contact via email and have a call after Feb. 10. By the way, will you join WMC? We can also discuss then.
