Performance of Coded Single-Band Carrier-Based DS-SS Systems on IEEE 802.15.3a UWB Channels
Paper in proceedings, 2005
A set of physical layer specifications is provided for a single-band system. The system fulfills the FCC regulations on UWB devices and the physical layer requirements from IEEE 802.15.3a. It gives reliable communication, i.e., a 90th-percentile PER equal to 8% for 1024 payload bytes, at 110 Mbps with a transmitter-receiver separation of up to 10 meters on the IEEE 802.15.3a channel model CM4. 205 Mbps at 6.7 meters on CM4 and 513 Mbps at 3.8 meters on CM2 are also achieved. The system uses the spectrum 3.1-4.9 GHz, a chip-spaced Rake combiner with 60 fingers, a sliding window channel estimator, and a sampling rate of 1540 Msamples/s.
