In the last few years, ultra-wideband (UWB) systems became an appealing technology for wireless communication applications. Unfortunately, when the transmission channel is affected by intersymbol interference (ISI), system performance of UWB systems equipped with receivers based on conventional matched filters presents error-floor phenomena. Aimed by these considerations, in this letter, we present a novel transmit-receive scheme allowing blind channel estimation and minimum mean-square error linear channel equalization. Essentially, the proposed scheme exploits a very short duration of theUWBpulse for achieving reliable blind deconvolution of the received signal. A nice feature of the resulting system is that blind deconvolution of the received signal is achieved without power and throughput losses. Simulation results support the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, and show that it is able to gain about 8 dB over current UWB receivers based on matched filtering on several test channels impaired by ISI.

Abstract

In the last few years, ultra-wideband (UWB) systems became an appealing technology for wireless communication applications. Unfortunately, when the transmission channel is affected by intersymbol interference (ISI), system performance of UWB systems equipped with receivers based on conventional matched filters presents error-floor phenomena. Aimed by these considerations, in this letter, we present a novel transmit-receive scheme allowing blind channel estimation and minimum mean-square error linear channel equalization. Essentially, the proposed scheme exploits a very short duration of theUWBpulse for achieving reliable blind deconvolution of the received signal. A nice feature of the resulting system is that blind deconvolution of the received signal is achieved without power and throughput losses. Simulation results support the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, and show that it is able to gain about 8 dB over current UWB receivers based on matched filtering on several test channels impaired by ISI.
