[802SEC] 802.15 PAR and 5C for an amendment to 15.4
802.15 is submitting a PAR and 5C for consideration at the San Antonio
Plenary Session in November. The PAR addresses a PHY layer
amendment to 802.15.4-2011 supporting ultra low power operation.
This is the result of work undertaken by the Ultra Low Power Study Group
which was initially formed last March.
Draft scope is:
5.2.b. Scope of the project:
This amendment defines an
ultra low power (ULP) physical layer operating in sub 1 GHz and 2.4 GHz
license exempt bands supporting typical data rates up to 1 Mbps. This
amendment also defines the necessary MAC changes required for supporting
the new ULP physical layer. The desired peak power consumption for the
PHY should be typically less than 15 mW.
and the draft need is:
5.5 Need for the Project:
Emerging applications in
sensor networks demand increasingly small form factor, low power
consumption and low cost solutions. From a power consumption perspective,
this amendment addresses solutions making it possible to achieve a
battery life of several years when connected to coin cell batteries
and/or making it possible to use
harvested energy sources while meeting the targeted data rates and
continuing to support the small form factor, low cost attributes of
