So why is UWB so Interesting?
• 7.5 Ghz of “free spectrum” .(Avoids expensive licensing fees.) • no interference with the existing wireless systems. (immunity to detection and intercept) Low transmit power.(share frequency spectrum) LPD-Low Probability of Detection. Secure. • Very high data rates possible according to Shannon theorem (Large channel capacity) • inherent robustness to multi-path fading (very short duration of UWB pulses) • flexibility of operation
10

• Resistance to Jamming (no jammer can jam every frequency in the UWB spectrum at once). That is high processing gain for UWB signals. • Ability to work with low SNR(Offers high performance in noisy environments) • excellent range resolution capabilities • low cost of implementation • Superior penetration properties(The low frequencies included in the broad range of the UWB frequency spectrum have long wavelengths) • low-power consumption.(simple transceiver architecture) Smaller form factor CMOS chipset implementation. Small antennas.

Coherent & Noncoherent architecture
For coherent architecture, the template signal is generated according to transmitted pulse shape. Recover both polarity(amplitude) and position(phase) of channel /UWB pulse. For non-coherent the template signal can be generated through an accurate delay line. The energy(envelope) detection is performed by a mixer used as a square-law device. Recover only the position information by collecting the energy of the UWB pulses. Avoiding the use of use of a bank of correlators and pulse matched filter. Timing or frame acquisition in the coherent receiver is very accurate (accurate ranging).

Two technology choices are RFCMOS or SiGe HBT BiCMOS.

15

Filter Technologies
UWB bandpass filter is a key component of UWB system. It must have an ultra wide passband, but also needs high selectivity to reject signals from existing systems such as 1.6 GHz global positioning systems (GPS) and 2.4 GHz Bluetooth systems. In addition, in some cases, the UWB bandpass filter needs to introduce steeply notched frequency bands in order to reduce interference from existing NB radio systems located within the UWB pass-band.

These requirements increase the challenges for the UWB filter designer. However, since conventional filter theory is based on the narrowband assumption and cannot be used to design UWB bandpass filters , novel techniques and technologies need to be developed for UWB bandpass filter design.

LNA architecture

21

wideband input impedance matching
The main challenge in UWB designs is to extend matching to the wide frequency range of 3.1-10.6 GHz. The LNA has to exhibit good input impedance.

common gate amplifier Resistive termination resistive shunt-feedback amplifier

22

UWB Antenna Configurations
Antennas are particularly challenging aspect of UWB. If an impulse is fed to an antenna, it tends to ring, severely distorting the pulse and spreading it out in time. Poor matching and large reflections.

Conventional wideband antennas such as the log-periodic and the spiral are wideband in amplitude, but not in phase; they distort the UWB signal.

The best antennas for UWB are arrays of TEM horns. The higher the frequency the antennas can be equally small.

NB Interference suppression

A tunable center frequency RF “roofing filter” applied to the UWB NB interference mitigation problem. This filter will introduce significant group delay distortion in the passband, and so spectral shaping of the transmitted waveform out of the interference band will also be required to minimize the resulting degradation in system performance. In the second case, an accurate estimation of the frequency, phase, and amplitude of the jammer is required to significantly reduce the interference level.
26

UWB shows significant throughput potential at short range

Although UWB technology is old, its application for communication is relatively new, thanks to FCC.

30

UWB modulates an impulse-like waveform (WAVELET) with Data. A typical baseband UWB pulse, also called monopulse, such as the Gaussian first derivative pulse can be used.

31

WAVELET Generation
The development of laser-actuated semiconductor fast-acting switches that can produce impulses or short duration waveforms of one or several cycles has been of interest for UWB. The traveling wave tube (TWT) can be used. It can be excited with a narrow impulse, but its energy is limited by the peak power of the TWT.

Integration of MultiBand and cognitive radio (CR)

49

Cognitive Radio(CR) is an emerging approach for a more flexible usage of the precious radio spectrum resources. By investigations on the radio spectrum usage, it has been observed that some frequency bands are largely unoccupied most of the time, some other frequency bands are only partially occupied, and the remaining frequency bands are heavily used.

A CR terminal can sense its environment and location and then adapt some of its features allowing to dynamically reuse valuable spectrum. This could lead to a multidimensional reuse (dynamical usage) of spectrum in space, frequency and time, exceeding the severe limitations in the spectrum and bandwidth allocations.

RAKE RECEIVER FOR UWB
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. 54

TR-UWB autocorrelation RxR
The mixer of the standard FSR-UWB scheme has been replaced by a delay element D.

non-coherent differential receiver

As an alternative to TH-IR,TR-IR first transmits a reference pulse of known polarity (or position), followed by a data pulse whose polarity (position) is determined by the information bit. At the receiver, we then only have to multiply the received signal with a delayed version of itself, resulting in an extremely simple receiver structure.

Robust-to-Timing TR (RTTR) considerably improves performance of the original TR in the presence of timing offsets or residual timing acquisition errors.

TR-IR - 6-8 dB degradation compared to coherent receiver Spectral efficiency divided by 2

57

UWB Transmitted-reference (TR) and frequency-shifted reference (FSR) ultra-wideband (UWB) systems employ pairs of reference and data signals, which are shifted in the time and frequency domains, respectively, to facilitate low-to-medium data rate communications without the need for complex channel estimation and template signal generation. On the other hand, the recently proposed coded-reference (CR) UWB systems provide orthogonalization of the reference and data signals in the code domain, which has advantages in terms of performance and/or implementation complexity.

Signal is multiplied by a spreading sequence in the frequency domain. As a result, the signal spreads in time. As an alternative to TH-IR, direct-sequence CDMA , a technique well-known from cellular radio, can be used. A large bandwidth is obtained by employing a 59 very high chip rate.

FH-PLL

dual-loop architecture with single-sideband mixing of a fast hopping

61

Fast frequency hopping changes the carrier frequency several times during the transmission of one symbol; in other words, the transmission of each separate symbol is spread over a large bandwidth. Slow frequency hopping transmits one or several symbols on each frequency.

Frequency hopping has a multiple access capability. Different users are distinguished by different hopping sequences, so that they transmit on different frequencies at any given time.

UWB radar over NB radar
• Higher range resolution and accuracy .Ultra High Range Resolution (UHRR) • • • • • • • enhanced target recognition immunity to passive “interference” immunity to co-located radar transmissions signals scattered by separate target elements do not interfere operational security because of the extremely large spectral spreading ability to detect very slowly moving or stationary targets Multiple targets can be resolved

67

With a long pulse NB radar waveform, changes in the target aspect cause a change only in the amplitude of the echo signal. With UWB signals, however, the shape of the echo signal will change, which makes efficient signal processing.

NB signal processing in radar almost always utilizes the envelope. With UWB waveforms, either the envelope or the RF signal can be used.

In indoor and dense urban environments the GPS signal is typically unavailable.

THE MEASURING METHOD OF UWB RADAR

72

The time-digitizer converter (TDC) estimate signal parameters,such as Angle-ofArrival(AOA), Time of Arrival (TOA), Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA), RTD (Round Trip Delay) and/or Received Signal Strength(RSS).

Then,in the second step,the Microprocessor-Controlled unit(MC) directs the work of the radar on given algorithms, based on the signal parameters obtained from the first step and provides data output for further digital processing in the computer(secondary processing). Fast Fourier transform, and digital filtration are software-programmable at the computer.

Display results to the display of a personal computer is made.

Short-pulse RF emissions from the tags are subsequently received by receivers and processed by the central hub CPU. A typical tag emission consists of a short burst, which includes synchronization preamble, tag identification (ID), optional data field (e.g., tag battery indicator), and FEC bits. Time differences of arrival (TDOA) of the tag burst at the various receiver sites are measured and sent back to the central processing hub for processing. Calibration is performed at system startup by monitoring data from a reference tag, which has been placed at a known location.

Discrete pulses emitted from the UWB transmitter travel to the human body and incidence it. The pulses comprising the information reflected from the human body travel back to the UWB receiver and then the result is recorded. Signal processing is performed through obtaining the pulses response with the shape and electrical properties of pulse.
83

UWB Radar emits (W tc) a short packet of electromagnetic waves whose echoes (W echo) are sampled using “conventional” UWB receiver.

UWB radar emissions are safe and the UWB electromagnetic signal is not influenced by clothes or blankets, and the useful range is in the order of a few meters.

Instead of emitting a short electromagnetic pulse, a short train-wave of light (electromagnetic energy as well) is emitted (IR laser diode is used as the antenna) and the echoes detected by a very fast PIN photodiode (UWB receiver equipped with a PIN photodiode). Resulting biomedical applications are quite interesting.

UWB-MIMO

99

Virtual-MIMO system for cellular network

100

MIMO (multiple-input multiple Output) techniques provide better spatial diversity and higher system capacity. With the development of mobile communication, MIMO techniques will be widely applied into B3G or 4G mobile communications in the future.

But, most of mobile terminalsÿ MTsÿ still utilize single antenna/antenna arrays, so the advantages of MIMO systems can’t be fully exhibited.

To exhibit MIMO, MT with multiple-antenna needed.For that, UWB-based Virtual-MIMO system for cellular network is proposed.
101

Each AP has a total 9 antennas/antenna arrays and servers the same area of 9 traditional cells. There are 3 Group Cells connected with AP1, which are

GT1 consisting of MT1 and MT2 antenna arrays connect with each other by UWB GT2 consisting of MT3 and MT4 one or multiple antennas connect with each other by UWB GT3 consisting of MT5 and MT6 hybrid antennas composed by antennas/antenna arrays connect with each other by UWB

One MT can directly communicate with some other MTs nearby without AP’s relaying. Each MT in GT is able to not only directly communicate with AP, but also connect with AP by sharing the antennas of other MTs in the same GT.
102

Ultra-wide-band (UWB) technology combined with multiple transmit and receive antennas (MIMO) is a viable way to achieve data rates of more than 1 Gb/s for wireless communications. MIMO systems allow for a substantial increase of spectral efficiency by exploiting the inherent array gain and spatial multiplexing gain of the systems. It is shown that the spectral efficiency is increased logarithmically and linearly, respectively, for single transmit and multiple receive antennas (SIMO) and MIMO systems. For multiple transmit and single receive antenna (MISO) systems, a threshold for the data transmission rate exists such that the spatial multiplexing gain can be obtained if the data rate is lower than this threshold. Two STC (Space Time Coding) schemes for UWB-MIMO are 1S/2A and 2S/2A.
103

Wireless USB
Under the WiMedia umbrella, industry incorporated UWB as the technology to achieve high data rates up to 480 Mbps for Wireless USB.

To replace the USB cable by providing secure high speed, short range communications, like USB but without the cables.

The UWB signals can be overlaid on the existing narrowband spectrum. This is expected to contribute to increasing spectrum efficiency of the satellite systems.

UWB signals for Ku-band downlink with 500 MHz bandwidth. UWB signals are radiated from satellites to the earth by which new satellite applications can be developed.

105

Bluetooth over Ultra Wideband (BToUWB)
BToUWB is modeled by channeling an existing compliant Bluetooth connection’s data over a software implemented UWB Medium Access Control (MAC) and simulated Physical (PHY) layer radio channel.

The simulated UWB link may closely resemble a real life UWB connection. Utilizing the UWB physical layer may provide even more advantages in terms of connection setup speed and device power saving.

UWB NETWORK EXTENSION

107

HDR-WPAN

The network is extended to cover wider area. IEEE 1394 can operate over both copper and fiber single cable. IEEE 1394 is an international standard for high performance serial bus that will enable simple, low-cost, and high-bandwidth isochronous/asynchronous data interfacing between UWB buses.

UWB/O

O/UWB

LD- laser diode PC- polarization controller PD- photo detector

To recover the information that is carried by the optical phase, we have to convert a phase-modulated signal to an intensity-modulated signal (PM-IM). A dispersive Device (single-mode fiber (SMF)) is used to change the phase relationship between the two first-order sidebands from out of phase to partially or fully in phase. The electrical signal is obtained at the output of a PD, which is ready to radiate to the space via an UWB antenna.
