IEEE 802.15.4 is the standard that focuses on the transmission of short-range and low data-rate.
Most of the products that claim to follow the standard of IEEE 802.15.4 in the markets now design the protocol in the microprocessors. Besides, almost all of the microprocessors are in synchronous system technology. Therefore, the circuit of Radio Frequency must raise power to reduce the interference. It causes the result that the lifespan of the batteries to be cut down.
Therefore, if we use asynchronous circuits or self-timed circuits to design the Media Access Control (MAC) layer, these problems will be solved.
Based on the above reasons, the thesis proposes a solution. We design and verify the MAC layer with Java language. Then, we use the SOCAD tool developed by our laboratory to compile the Java program into self-timed VHDL circuits to achieve the goal of low power consumption.
