We investigate timing tolerances of ultra-wideband (UWB) impulse radios. We quantify the bit-error rate (BER) sensitivity to epoch timing offset under different operating conditions, including frequency-flat fading channels, dense multipath fading channels, multiple access with time hopping, and various receiver types including sliding correlators and RAKE combiners. For a general correlation-based detector, we derived in Part I unifying expressions for the decision statistics as well as BER… CONTINUE READING
