Ultra-wideband (UWB) communication systems provide very high data rates by transmitting extremely short duration pulses. The impulse waveform is one of the key factors that influence the performance of these systems. While fulfilling the FCC spectral emission requirements, the pulse shape must offer high detection capabilities with suitable levels of accuracy. In this paper, various pulse shapes are considered within a computationally-efficient fast acquisition system under different scenarios… CONTINUE READING
