In the UWB system, long sequences of pulses are used with time-hopping (TH)

pulse-position modulation for the communication. This TH modulation makes more

uniform the distribution of the RF signal power over its frequency band. This effect

causes the UWB signal to resemble noise in the frequency domain. Therefore the

UWB signal is less detectable, and resistant to jamming from other communication


Figure 2.13 shows a typical time-hopping signal controlled by the pseudo random

(PN) sequence used in the UWB system. The transmitter bursts one monocycle in a

time frame location determined by PN code sequence. This basic UWB signal form

can be described[32, 43] as

s(t) =


ω(tjTf −cjTc−d j/Nrep )


where ω is the monocycle waveform. The frame time Tf is usually hundred times

wider than the monocycle signal, resulting in a signal with a very low duty cycle.


The cj represents a distinctive time-hopping sequence pattern, d represents the data

sequence, which is addition binary pulse position modulation, and Tc is the duration

of addressable time delay bins.
