Chapter 7 The Pulse Shaper

The choice of the impulse response of the pulse shaper filter is crucial since it affects the PSD of the transmitted signal. In this chapter, we will first analyze the effect of pulse width variation and differentiation on pulse shape. We then investigate the effect of combining different waveforms to form a pulse that complies with power limitations as set by emission masks defined in Chapter 6, “Performance Analysis of the UWB Radio Link.”

7.1 The Pulse

The choice of the impulse response of the pulse shaper filter is crucial since it affects the PSD of the transmitted signal (Di Benedetto and Vojcic, 2003).

Often, the term “monocycle” is found instead of “pulse” because the pulse-modulated sinewave used in conventional ...
