Ultra wideband (UWB) is considered to be one of the most promising short range wireless communication technologies; due to its high data rate, low cost and low energy consumption. Despite its enviable benefits, the performance of UWB systems may be degraded due to the presence of inband narrow band interference (NBI) signals and this performance must be carefully investigated. To this end; we provide a simple theoretical analysis to the bit error rate performance of the Rake reception of the…
