Ultra-Wideband Communication Systems: Technology and Applications

  1. Content type: Research Article

    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...
