Abstract [en]

Despite the fact ultra-wideband (UWB) technology has been around for over 30 years, there is a newfound excitement about its potential for communications. With the advantageous qualities of multipath immunity and low power spectral density, researchers are examining fundamental questions about UWB communication systems. Majorly the whole report gives a complete picture about properties of UWB signal and its advantages and disadvantages, generation of the UWB pulse using various techniques, Modulation scheme, Test bed, applications, UWB regulations. The report mainly concerns with the survey about various techniques and also its comparison of generating UWB pulses using various components. There is a general description on various modulation and demodulation scheme that are relevant to UWB technology and its various applications concerning different fields.


This report clearly explains how UWB is far better than RFID and difference between active and passive RFID and its communication protocol, message format. Clear explanation about advantage of higher operating frequencies and low power spectral density. Properties of UWB pulse gives clear idea why we go for UWB and in near future lot of applications will discover. Generation of UWB is a tedious process and in this report readers can understand the various method of generation its advantages and its drawbacks. Modulation and demodulation scheme gives clear idea about how UWB are modulated and demodulated as well as its probability of error and in which situation which modulation is suitable. By using future testbed concept, smaller size UWB chip will be designed and used in various application efficiently. Application gives clear idea about how to take advantage of various properties.
