Abstract [en]

Ultra wideband (UWB) radio for communication has several challenges. From the physical layer perspective, asignaling technique should be optimally designed to work in synergy with the underneath hardware to achievemaximum performance. In this paper, we propose a variant of pulse position modulation (PPM) for physical layersignaling, which can achieve raw bitrate in excess of 150 Mbps on a low complexity in-house developed impulseradio UWB platform. The signaling system is optimized to maximize bitrate under practical constraints of lowcomplexity hardware and regulatory bodies. We propose a detector and derive its theoretical performance boundsand compare the performance in simulation in terms of symbol error rates (SER). Modifications to the signaling, whichcan increase the range by 4 times with a slight increase in hardware complexity, is proposed. Detectors for thismodification and a comparative study of the performance of the proposed UWB physical layer signaling schemes interms of symbol error rates are discussed.
