This paper presents a 2.45 GHz wake-up receiver front-end intended for use in sensor networks, and is designed to receive data modulated with on-off-keying. Manufactured in 65 nm CMOS it employs an uncertain IF structure with three phase passive mixer and high gain amplifier chain. With the modulation frequency response tailored to the detector behaviour, it achieves a sensitivity of -88 dBm at BER of 10e-3 with a
data rate of 250kbps. Operating on a 0.75V supply it has a power consumption of just 50uW. It provides a 50Ohm input match completely on-chip using a compact inductor and has an active area of just 0.07mm2.
