    Cramér-Rao Lower Bounds for the Synchronization of UWB Signals

    We present Cramér-Rao lower bounds (CRLBs) for the synchronization of UWB signals which should be tight lower bounds for the theoretical performance limits of UWB synchronizers. The CRLBs are investigated for ...

    Comparison between Coherent and Noncoherent Receivers for UWB Communications

    We present a comparison between coherent and noncoherent UWB receivers, under a realistic propagation environment, that takes into account also the effect of path-dependent pulse distortion. As far as coherent...
