This book is a compilation of chapters on various aspects of Ultra Wideband. The book includes chapters on Ultra Wideband transceiver implementations, pulse-based systems and one on the implementation for the WiMedia/MBOFDM approach. Another chapter discusses the implementation of the physical layer baseband, including the ADC and post-ADC processing required in the UWB system. Future advances such as multiantenna UWB solutions are also discussed.

In the past decade, substrate noise has had a constant and significant impact on the design of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits. Only recently, with advances in chip miniaturization and innovative circuit design, has substrate noise begun to plague fully digital circuits as well. To combat the effects of substrate noise, heavily over-designed structures are generally adopted, thus seriously limiting the advantages of innovative... more...
