Impulse Radio Systems with Multiple Types of Ultra-Wideband Pulses

  title={Impulse Radio Systems with Multiple Types of Ultra-Wideband Pulses},
  author={Sinan Gezici and Zafer Sahinoglu and Hisashi Kobayashi and H. Vincent Poor},
Spectral properties and performance of multi-pulse impulse radio ultra-wideband systems with pulse-based polarity randomization are analyzed. Instead of a single type of pulse transmitted in each frame, multiple types of pulses are considered, which is shown to reduce the effects of multiple-access interference. First, the spectral properties of a multi-pulse impulse radio system is investigated. It is shown that the power spectral density is the average of spectral contents of different pulse…

Performance evaluation of impulse radio UWB systems with pulse-based polarity randomization in asynchronous multiuser environments
The analysis shows that the chip-synchronous assumption can result in over-estimating the error probability, and hence that the system design based on this approximation will he on the safe side.

As the communication system for a new indoor short distance radio-communication for wireless personal area networks (WPAN), the ultra wideband (UWB) system is examined towards standardization. In
The trade-off between processing gains of impulse radio systems in the presence of timing jitter
Approximate expressions for bit error probability are derived for both coded and uncoded systems over additive white Gaussian noise channels and are used as the criterion to choose optimal N/ sub f/ and N/sub c/ values.
On the tradeoff between two types of processing gains
In this paper, a general class of MA communication systems that use both types of processing gain is presented, and both IR and RCDMA systems are demonstrated to be two special cases of this more generalclass of systems.
Impulse radio: how it works
The characteristics of impulse radio using a modulation format that can be supported by currently available impulse signal technology are described and analytical estimates of its multiple- access capability under ideal multiple-access channel conditions are given.
Performance of low-complexity RAKE reception in a realistic UWB channel
It is shown that the simpler PRAKE receiver is almost as good as the SRAKE even for a small number of fingers, and it is shown how this behavior can be related to the channel characteristics.
