Chapter 5 Monolithic integrated circuits for UWB transceivers

Gunter Fischer and Christoph Scheytt

The great interest in UWB systems is well-motivated by the huge signal bandwidth. As shown in the previous chapters, the ultra-wide signal bandwidth has many benefits, such as very high data transmission rates and very fine time resolution. Either or both of these potentials would be very attractive for short-range communication systems, if a substantial advantage in terms of power consumption or performance could be achieved compared to existing radio solutions. In particular, the possible time resolution well below 1 ns is a unique feature, which seems to be the enabler for precise indoor localization. Unfortunately, the huge signal bandwidth ...
