This paper investigates the estimation of the frame frequency in ultrawideband (UWB) communication systems. An estimation method is proposed that exploits the transmission of a periodic pulse sequence at the frame frequency. The samples of the received waveform are used to compute a cost function that depends on a trial value of the incoming pulse frequency. The location of the maximum provides an estimate of the transmitted frequency. The performance of the estimator is assessed theoretically… CONTINUE READING
