An Energy-Efficient All-Digital UWB Transmitter Employing Dual Capacitively-Coupled Pulse-Shaping Drivers

Abstract

This paper presents an all-digital, non-coherent, pulsed-UWB transmitter. By exploiting relaxed center frequency tolerances in non-coherent wideband communication, the transmitter synthesizes UWB pulses from an energy-efficient, single-ended digital ring oscillator. Dual capacitively coupled digital power amplifiers (PAs) are used in tandem to attenuate low… (More)
