Abstract

Transmitted reference (TR) [1] and differential (DF) [2] schemes are two alternatives for ultra-wideband (UWB) communication systems. They both employ non-coherent autocorrelation receivers, circumventing problems of template signal design and multipath energy combining. Their receivers can also operate at different synchronization accuracy levels, being more robust to synchronization inaccuracy than coherent receivers. In this paper, BER performance of TR and DF receivers at different synchronization levels is derived. Comparisons of TR and DF schemes are made, and the tradeoff between performance and synchronization complexity for autocorrelation receivers is discussed. Simulations corroborate our findings.
