The vision for a single-chip radio has been in existence for many years. There also have been numerous claims of single-chip radios. An example of fully featured radio that is close to being a single chip is TI BRF6100, which is ~8 mm by 9 mm in dimensions and includes radio frequency (RF), baseband analog and logic, memory, and power management circuits. Impressive as it is, this device requires about 16 external components. The parts list includes baluns, inductors, and capacitors for off-chip matching, a crystal reference, as well as an antenna.
