Recommended by Hikmet Sari We investigate the use of a linear precoded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (LP-OFDM) waveform for high-data-rate ultra-wideband (UWB) systems. This waveform applied for the first time to UWB applications is an evolution of the multiband OFDM (MB-OFDM) solution supported by WiMedia-MBOA (MultiBand OFDM Alliance). The(More)
Ultra-wideband (UWB) is a fast technology that has recently attracted considerable interest in the research and standardization communities, due to its ability to provide high data rate at low cost and low power consumption. The objective of this thesis is to propose a new UWB system for high data rate wireless personal area network (WPAN) applications,(More)
In subjects with renal disease, reduced renal function and increased arterial stiffness are significantly associated in cross-sectional studies. The relationship is independent of age, blood pressure (BP), and atherosclerosis. Because both variables are independent predictors of cardiovascular risk, time-dependent relationships between them are important to(More)
In this paper, we investigate the use of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) techniques with linear precoded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (LP-OFDM) wave-form for high data rate ultra-wideband (UWB) systems. This scheme is an evolution of the multiband OFDM (MB-OFDM) solution supported by the WiMedia Alliance. The aim of this paper is to(More)
BACKGROUND Uncalibrated arterial waveform analysis (FloTrac/Vigileo) uses standard arterial access to determine cardiac output (CO). Calculations are based on arterial waveform characteristics in combination with patient characteristic data to estimate individual arterial compliance. It has been shown that obesity is associated with altered arterial(More)
—In this paper, we investigate a cross-layer design for the packet scheduling and the resource allocation in UWB systems. This design considers the combination of queuing and channel state information (CSI) which provides QoS support for multimedia applications in UWB. For the physical layer, the use of a linear precoded orthogonal division multiplexing(More)
