In Cognitive Radio (CR) applications UltraWideBand (UWB) Impulse Radio (IR) signals can be designed such as they can co-exist with licensed primary users. The pulse shape should be adjusted such that the power spectral characteristics not only meet the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) constrains, but also mitigate multiple narrow-band interference at the locations of existing primary users. In this paper, the Parks-McClellan (PM) Algorithm and the Eigen Value Decomposition (EVD) approach for UWB impulse radio waveform shaping are considered.
