For pulsed ultra-wideband (UWB) radios, a major challenge in receiver design is to collect sufficient energy from ultrashort pulses exposing to strong multipath scattering. We develop a UWB receiver structure along with low-complexity timing synchronization and data demodulation schemes based on noisy templates (NTs). The NT receiver enjoys full multipath diversity, and achieves asymptotically optimal detection performance with robustness to mistiming. The detection error performance of the NT… CONTINUE READING
