About this Book

Learn about Ultra-wideband (UWB) transmission - the most talked about application in wireless communications.

UWB wireless communication is a revolutionary technology for transmitting large amounts of digital data over a wide spectrum of frequency bands with very low power for a short distance. This exciting new text covers the fundamental aspects of UWB wireless communications systems for short-range communications. It also focuses on more advanced information about networks and applications. Chapters include: Radio Propagation and Large Scale Variations, Pulse Propagation and Channel Modelling, MIMO (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) RF Subsystems and Ad Hoc Networks.

  • Focuses on UWB wireless communications rather than UWB radar, which has been covered before.
  • Provides long and short-term academic and technological value.
  • Teaches readers the fundamentals, challenges and up-to-date technical processes in this field.
