Abstract

UWB systems are promoted as a method of optimizing the limited bandwidth available for information transfer. However, UWB systems must contend with path loss, multiple reflections, and higher powered radiators like WLAN or radars. Unless a breakthrough occurs, these jammers, as well as DSP limitations, will limit sustainable data rates to
