I was running through the datasheet of CC2500
(Low-Cost Low-Power 2.4 GHz RF Transceiver) which has a dimension of
2.40mm X 2.40mm approx. It was really amazing to find such transceivers to be fabricated in such a small area.Infact a transceiver requires a lot of
C and even
L.Resistors, Capacitors and semiconductors are easy to be imagined on an IC but an Inductor!!!
I haven't work in any VLSI industry so it would be great if someone can tell how these inductor logic is implemented on IC. Although it is said that gyrators are alternative solution, but thanks for pointing if my knowledge is correct.
