Millimeter-wave technology shows high potential for future wireless personal area networks, reaching over 1 Gbps transmissions using simple modulation techniques. Current specifications consider dividing the spectrum into effortlessly separable spectrum ranges. These low requirements open a research area in time and space multiplexing techniques for(More)
To my parents and my beloved husband, for all of their support and encouragement iv ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS It is a pleasure to express my sincere gratitude to the many people who made this dissertation possible. Foremost, I am very grateful to my advisor, Professor Gee-Kung Chang, for his guidance, patience, and never ending support. The enthusiasm and perpetual(More)
Millimeter-wave transmission systems allow for very high throughput rates and broad bandwidths using wireless technology. Most Body Area Networks (BANs) work in the high MHz or few GHz range, which limit the channel capacity of the system. If the bandwidth is narrow, only low spectrally-efficient modulation techniques can be utilized. In this study an(More)
Digital communication systems are characterized by having a filter at the transmitter and receiver sides. The optimum parametric linear combination pulse (PLCP) is evaluated at the transmitter and receiver sides from different practical perspectives of interest. The proposed pulse exhibits the largest eye opening, and possesses the minimum maximum(More)
