Often, the major requisites of short-range communication systems are low power consumption and low cost, rather than high data-transmission speeds. This paper proposes low-cost and extremely low-power radio communication devices that use a basic one-chip microcomputer for short-range transmission and reception. In the proposed transmitter, a rectangular wave is generated at external I/O ports as carrier by the basic one-chip microcomputer and is then filtered and radiated by an antenna circuit. In the proposed receiver, the received signal is detected by a radio IC and is subsequently digitally processed by a microcomputer with a built-in A/D converter. The proposed transmitter and receiver are demonstrated, and the system performance is experimentally evaluated.
