Ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless communication is a revolutionary technology for transmitting large amounts of digital data over a wide frequency spectrum using short-pulse, low powered radio signals. UWB commonly refers to a signal or system that either has a large relative bandwidth (BW) that exceeds 20% or a large absolute bandwidth of more than 500 MHz. A 14 February 2002 report and order by the federal communications commission (FCC) authorizes the unlicensed use of UWB in 3.1--10.6 GHz. This…

Ultra-Wideband Technology for Military Applications

The application of UWB technology in military areas has been summarized and its wider applications has been evaluated over several leading technology including military technology systems, government sectors, communication systems, surveillance systems, rescuing, logistics entertainment, public transport, and others.

All Optical Generation and Processing of IR UWB Signals

The high data rates are the most attractive feature of UWB systems for which speeds of over 100Mb/s have been demonstrated andWaveforms for IR UWB are designed to obtain a flat frequency response over the bandwidth of the pulse and to avoid a DC component.

Performance comparison of Impulse Radio Ultra Wideband receivers

A performance comparison between Transmitted Reference, Multi differential frequency shift reference(MD-FSR) and code shift reference (CSR) which are the three primary pulse sending techniques in UWB communication are presented.

Transmission of 60 GHz Ultra Wideband Radio over Optical Fiber Using MB-OFDM

Ultra wideband radio over optical fiber (UROOF) technique enables the transmission of ultra wideband (UWB) radio signals over optical fibers by superimposing the UWB radio frequency signals of

Impulse radio ultra wideband over fiber techniques for broadband in-building network applications

In recent years, the demand for high bandwidth and mobility from the end users has been continuously growing. To satisfy this demand, broadband communication technologies that combined the benefit of


Study on non-line of sight indoor channel models illustrates that bit error rate performance of UWB SRAKE-MMSE improves for CM3 model with smaller spread compared to CM4 channel model cancelling out the narrowband interference.

Performance of Ultra Wide Band Systems in High-Speed Wireless Personal Area Networks

The GIMF detector is proven to outperform the classical matched filter for Mode 1 channels because of its ability to capture the stochastic characteristics of UWB channels and robustly adapt to their spectral density shapes.

This paper presents a cost-efficient antenna design that can be used by UWB systems for localization problems and achieves reasonably high realized gain of 5–7 dBi in the desired frequency band, thereby extending the range of the localization system from 75 meters to 250 meters.

A new insightful exploration into a low profile ultra-wide-band (UWB) microstrip antenna for DS-UWB applications

Designing a simple and planar antenna for high speed short distance ultra-wideband (UWB) communication has become a buzzword over the last few years. There are two very different categories of UWB

The novel components, architecture, and realization of UWB UROOF systems are proposed and new experimental results related to UWB signal up-conversion, photonic radio impulse generation, and digital and analog signal coexistence are presented.



Impulse radio: how it works

The characteristics of impulse radio using a modulation format that can be supported by currently available impulse signal technology are described and analytical estimates of its multiple- access capability under ideal multiple-access channel conditions are given.

Wideband: multimedia unplugged

Its purpose: to replace almost every data cable in the home, even the ones going in and out of the television set, a job that requires moving hundreds of megabits of data per second, faster than all but the speediest of wired networks.

Time-domain electromagnetics and its applications

The purpose of this paper is to introduce the reader to the elments of time-domain electromagnetics, which includes baseband-pulse technology and target-signature analysis. Baseband pulses are video

A Mathematical Theory of Communication

It is proved that the authors can get some positive data rate that has the same small error probability and also there is an upper bound of the data rate, which means they cannot achieve the data rates with any encoding scheme that has small enough error probability over the upper bound.
