The Link Budget Evaluation of Ultra Wideband Impulse Radio Transmission Systems

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The link budget of the transmission gain is usually evaluated by using the Friis' transmission formula. However, it is not directly applicable to Ultra WideBand Impulse Radio (UWB-IR) transmission systems. This paper presents the link budget evaluation formula in the term of transmission gain for the UWB-IR systems that takes into account the transmitted waveform, its distortion due to the antennas, the channel and the correlation receiver. Since the antennas are significant pulse-shaping filters in UWB-IR, the various kinds of the antennas are experimentally examined, especially focused on the effect of the received signal and the isotropic template waveforms.
