Short Range Wireless Systems

Course Description

Introduction to personal area networks (PANs). Body area networks (BANs). Wired PAN technologies: Universal Serial Bus (USB) and FireWire. Wireles PAN (WPAN) technologies: Bluetooth, ZigBee, Wi-Fi, Infrared Data Association (IrDA), Wireless Universal Serial Bus (WUSB), Radio-frequency identification (RFID), Near Field Communication (NFC),and Z-Wave. Bluetooth: protocol stack, topology, addressing, physical channels, packet formats, packet types, error correction, logical channels, and clock timings. ZigBee: protocol stack, topologies, packet format, packet types, and error correction. UWB, RFID. Case studies based on Bluetooth, ZigBee, RFID and Wi-Fi.
