An ultra wideband (UWB) communications system that applies time reversal to transmit the desired signal is investigated. Exact expressions for the firstand second-order moments, cross-correlation, intersymbol interference metric, and correlation coefficient of time reversal (TR) UWB equivalent channel are derived in terms of the physical channel parameters such as delay spread and mean excess delay. These expressions are verified by simulated and experimental results. It is shown that TR-UWB… CONTINUE READING
