Chapter 6 UWB applications

Xuyang Li, Jens Timmermann, Werner Wiesbeck and Łukasz Żwirełło

In this chapter typical UWB applications are presented and discussed, particularly regarding their RF system design.

6.1 UWB communication

6.1.1 Modeling of the system components

The system model for impulse radio transmission consists of the transmitter, the UWB indoor channel and the receiver, see Fig. 6.1. At the transmitter side, the pulse generator creates pulses at moments defined by the pulse position modulation (PPM) scheme and the time-hopping (TH) code. Without modulation and coding, pulses appear at multiples of the pulse repetition time T. To modulate the signal by PPM, the binary values of the bit stream determine whether a constant delay ...
