Performance Analysis of Ultra Wideband Multiple Access Time Hopping – Pulse Shape Modulation in Presence of Timing Jitter
In short-range networks such as wireless personal area networks (WPAN), multiple user wireless connectivity for surveillance would require a wireless technology that supports multiple streams of high-speed data and consumes very little power. Ultra wideband (UWB) technology enables wireless connectivity across multiple devices (users) addressing the need for high-speed WPAN. Apart from having a distinct advantage of higher data rate over Bluetooth v4.0 (24 Mbps), the UWB technology is also found to be tolerant to frequency-selective multipath fading. In this paper authors discuss a time-hopping pulse shape modulation UWB signalling scheme for ad-hoc high bit rate wireless connectivity for defence applications. Authors analyse multiple access interference for both Gaussian channel and frequency selective multipath fading channel to compare the effects of timing jitter on two types of pulse shapes, namely modified Hermite pulse (MHP) and prolate spheroidal wave functions (PSWF). Authors make a comparative analysis of the system performance with respect to PSWF and MHP to ascertain robustness to timing jitter. In the process, authors introduced a new metric of decision factor in timing jitter analysis.
