This paper shows the design and performance simulation of a 2.4 GHz plug-and-play transceiver based on a high speed switch for IEEE 802.15.4 applications. The electrical design was optimized taking into account the scattering parameters, input-output impedance matching and minimum trace width. The simulation results show an important performance regarding the Noise Figure (0.38 dB) and gain (21 dB) at particular temperature for reception mode, transmission scattering parameters (S12 and S21) and reflection scattering parameters (all the rest parameters) for both mode operation (Power Amplifier and Low Noise Amplifier).
