CDMA-PPM for UWB Impulse Radio
Pulse-Position Modulation (PPM) is widely used in Impulse Radio (IR) due to the simplicity of its transceiver structure and signal detection. It is usually used along with Time Hopping (TH) to support multiple users in IR and to take the advantage of a small collision probability among simultaneous users. This advantage, however, is achieved at the cost of a wider frame length and the concentration of each user's frame signal energy on a single pulse. Thus, it is likely that the TH-PPM information can totally be damaged whenever a collision occurs.
