Ultra wideband radio is an emerging wireless standard that uses sub-nanosecond pulses to transmit data, resulting in several GHz bandwidths. The problem of generating a synchronized template respect to the received signal grows in complexity as the signal bandwidth increases. In this paper, an innovative, low cost, non-coherent receiver architecture is proposed for autonomous detection of ultra wideband signals. The new receiver will self-generate a synchronous template and hence, no transmitter-reference synchronizer is required. We validate its performance via simulations compared with coherent receivers and conventional non-coherent receivers, the new architecture is found much more robust to timing noise and hence greatly facilitates the synchronise problem in UWB receiver.
