Abstract

In this work we propose an orthogonal pulse waveform for wireless ultra wideband (UWB) transmission. The design is based on an ideal low-pass prototype filter having a windowed sinc impulse response. The frequency response of the prototype filter is transferred to the high frequency region using a specific sign modulator. The UWB pulse waveform comprises of the weighted summation of the left singular vectors of the impulse response matrix. The power spectral density of the pulse waveform fulfils the FCC constraint (allowed frequency band 3.1-10.6 GHz) for unlicensed UWB transmission. Applications of the UWB pulse waveform in multi-channel wireless sensor networks are considered.
