Abstract

The ultra wide band technology may potentially cover a large spectrum of digital communication applications. It will be used by the medical, automotive, radar and consumer communication industries, due to its potential capabilities and unprecedented effectiveness regarding multipath problems.

In present paper, we study a short communication system associating coded monocycle pulse to the UWB technique. In order to evaluate the performance of this system, the bit error rate (BER) values are calculated using computer simulations. To validate the theoretical values, some experiments have been implemented using a laboratory mock-up.

Keywords: Ultra-wide band; Monocycle pulse; Short wireless communication.
