This paper presents an integrated 22nm FDSOI Bluetooth Classic and BLE dual mode transceiver achieving -98.2dBm sensitivity with 2.1mW analog and 0.85mW digital baseband power at 1Mb/s. Inspired from software defined radio approach, it demonstrates a 185dB RX figure of merit, a +10dBm TX output power, and 1mm2 silicon area with complete analog frontend and digital baseband integration. The state-of-art low power consumption is maintained while meeting both the BLE and BT-classic specifications.
