Ultra WideBand Impulse Radio in Multiple Access Wireless Communications

by Lai, Weei-Shehng

Abstract (Summary)
Ultra-Wideband impulse radio (UWB-IR) technology is an attractive method on multi-user for high data rate transmitting structures. In this thesis, we use the ultra wideband (UWB) signal that is modulated by the time-hopping spread spectrum technique in a wireless multiple access environments, and discuss the influences of multiple access interference. We discuss two parts of the influences of multiple access interference in this thesis. The first, we analyze the multiple access interferences on the conventional correlation receiver, and discuss the influences by using the time hopping code on different multiple access structures. The second, we know that the performances of user detection and system capacity would be degraded by the conventional correlation receiver in the multiple access channels. The Probabilistic Data Association(PDA) multi-user detection technology can eliminate multiple access interferences in this part. We will use this method to verify the system performance through the computer simulations, and compare to other multi-user detectors with convention correlation receivers. Finally, the simulation results show that the performance of the PDA multi-user detections is improved when the system is full loaded.
