We have proposed and implemented a spread spectrum (SS) wireless switch using 2.4 GHz front-end AlN/Al2O3 surface acoustic wave (SAW) matched filter (MF). Since the SAW MF has radio frequency (RF) front-end operation, RF components are not needed in the received circuit. High impedance in the peripheral circuit using passive devices has been employed for low current consumption. The SS wireless switches have been designed with the power consumption of less than 100 μW by using the SAW MF. It is confirmed that implemented SS wireless switch has a long battery life of 10 years and communication range of 30 m.
