    Blind Synchronization in Asynchronous UWB Networks Based on the Transmit-Reference Scheme

    Ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless communication systems are based on the transmission of extremely narrow pulses, with a duration inferior to a nanosecond. The application of transmit reference (TR) to UWB systems...

    Analog-Digital Partitioning for Low-Power UWB Impulse Radios under CMOS Scaling

    Ultra-wideband (UWB) impulse radios show strong advantages for the implementation of low-power transceivers. In this paper, we analyze the impact of CMOS technology scaling on power consumption of UWB impulse ...

    Interference Mitigation for Coexistence of Heterogeneous Ultra-Wideband Systems

    Two ultra-wideband (UWB) specifications, that is, direct-sequence (DS) UWB and multiband-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MB-OFDM) UWB, have been proposed as the candidates of the IEEE 802.15.3a, co...

    Optimal and Suboptimal Finger Selection Algorithms for MMSE Rake Receivers in Impulse Radio Ultra-Wideband Systems

    The problem of choosing the optimal multipath components to be employed at a minimum mean square error (MMSE) selective Rake receiver is considered for an impulse radio ultra-wideband system. First, the optima...
