A Low Complex and Efficient Coexistence Approach for Non-Coherent Multiband Impulse Radio UWB

Free registration required

Executive Summary

When bringing a high data rate multiband impulse radio UWB system to the market it has to coexist with other already existing UWB technologies such as multiband OFDM UWB. This paper analyzes the interference impact of a multiband OFDM UWB system on a non-coherent multiband impulse radio UWB system. It is shown that the impact can be so dominant that communication within the impulse based multiband UWB system gets worse. For this reason a static as well as a dynamic coexistence approach are considered. The dynamic approach uses an efficient, robust and easy to realize "Pixel" based interference detection algorithm in conjunction with an adapted band-plan array.
