Introduction to Ultra Wide Band Communication Systems offers a comprehensive view of UWB system design, that spans propagation, antennas, receive and transmitter implementations, standards and regulations, interference issues, simulation techniques, modulation and multiple access, network issues, and applications. This book encompasses all areas of design and implementation of UWB systems crucial to their successful testing and deployment. UWB offers unique capabilities, such as extremely high data rates, and building partitions and ground penetrating transmission. The FCC acknowledged the benefits of UWB when, in 2001, regulations were modified to allow the transmission of UWB signals. The standardization effort has recently come to fruition with the creation of a new, regulated communication standard. However, a new standard brings along with it new regulations and equipment; and the design of UWB systems is very different than traditional communication systems. The current general reference books for design of communication systems are insufficient, and in some cases could be misleading to a UWB designer. Furthermore, there is a tremendous need to unify the diverse concepts and fields of study embedded in the design of UWB systems.

The definitive, end-to-end guide to high-performance UWB system design
With the FCC's approval of new ultra wideband standards, UWB is poised to drive breakthroughs in both commercial and military communications. However, UWB system design is radically different from conventional communications system design, and traditional design guides are insufficient—or even misleading. Now, for the first time, there's an authoritative and comprehensive guide to the latest best practices in UWB system design.
Authored by leading-edge experts and researchers, Introduction to Ultra Wideband Communication Systems systematically addresses every major issue engineers will face in designing, implementing, testing, and deploying successful systems. The authors cover propagation, antennas, receiver and transmitter implementation, standards and regulations, interference, simulation, modulation and multiple access, networking, applications, and more.
UWB fundamentals: technology, system components, standards/regulations, and the controversies surrounding UWB
Never-before-published techniques for addressing propagation, modeling, and channel simulation
UWB antenna design—including surprising differences between UWB and narrowband systems
Effective transmitter design reflecting UWB's modulation principles
Receiver design for impulse UWB systems—including key differences from conventional carrier-based systems
In-depth coverage of interference, focusing on "peaceful coexistence" between UWB and narrowband radio systems
Practical simulation techniques that avoid unacceptably long simulation times
How UWB's physical layer capabilities impact the performance and design of upper layers
Real-world UWB applications and case studies of existing systems
This book is the definitive resource for every professional involved with UWB: RF engineers concerned with UWB's impact on radio design; experienced computer and DSP engineers moving into radio communications; systems engineers who must master UWB radio link design; and technical managers who must clearly understand the challenges they'll face in delivering successful systems.
