Summary form only given. This paper presents the design of a compact monocycle pulse former (MPF) to be used as a shaping component in a polyvalent high-power ultrawideband source for field and lab applications. The described MPF was designed with a strong compactness constraint to comply with such embedded applications as UAVs or vehicle-mounted UWB systems. The architecture of the MPF was inspired by the one described in the MPF comprises a pulse sharpening assembly with a bi-conical peaking… CONTINUE READING
