Implementation oriented, this volume explores the fundamentals of UWB technology with particular emphasis on impulse radio (IR) techniques. It explains the key physical layer aspects of UWB technology, especially in communications and in control applications, and examines the multiple access (MAC) issues which are emerging as a hot area for practical UWB systems.
- Offers practical information about implementation
- Addresses issues of modulation possibilities, appropriate circuits for UWB, an example circuit design, MAC protocol issues and use of UWB for positioning applications
- Includes a literature survey examining books, articles and conference papers presenting the basic features of UWB technology and current systems
- Features a patent database search providing a historical perspective to the state-of-the-art technology
UWB Theory and Applications will be indispensable to researchers interested in the practical issues of UWB technology and realistic assumptions of UWB, as well as engineers interested in implementing UWB devices.
