The RAKE receiver, a preferred structure for collecting multi-path energy is a good
choice to build IR UWB system.

Rake receiver consists of multiple correlators (fingers) where each of the fingers can
detect/extract the signal from one of the multipath components (MPC) provided by the
channel. The outputs of the fingers are appropriately weighted and combined (using
maximal-ratio combining (MRC)) to reap the benefits of multipath diversity.

Rake receivers, which are based on either partial combining (called PRake) or
selective combining (called SRake). The first is suboptimum and combines the first
arriving multipath components, while the second combines the strongest multipath
components. A standard “ideal” Rake receiver that combines all of the resolvable
multipath component is called All-Rake (ARake).

The RAKE with a LMS adaptive equalizer and the RAKE with a LMS adaptive
combiner perform better than the traditional N-selective MRC RAKE structure in the
ISI environment.

A reduced complexity combining technique that does not require the estimates of the
fading amplitudes is equal gain combining (EGC), where all the multipath components
are weighted equally.
