ABSTRACT This paper investigates and compares the performance of various ultrawide bandwidth (UWB) systems when communicating over Nakagami-m fading channels. Specifically, the direct-sequence (DS), time-hopping (TH) and hybrid direct-sequence time-hopping (DS-TH) UWB systems are considered. The performance of these UWB systems is studied, when using the conventional single-user correlation detector or the minimum mean-square error (MMSE) multiuser detector. Our simulation results show that the hybrid DS-TH UWB system may outperform a corresponding pure TH-UWB or pure DS-UWB system in terms of the achievable error performance. Given the total spreading gain of the hybrid DS-TH UWB system, there is an optimal setting of the TH spreading factor and DS spreading factor, which results in the best error performance.

    ABSTRACT: In this contribution reduced-rank adaptive minimum mean- square error multiuser detector (MMSE-MUD) is proposed and investigated for the hybrid direct-sequence time-hopping ultrawide bandwidth (DS-TH UWB) systems. The adaptive MMSE-MUD is operated based on the normalised least mean-square (NLMS) principles associated with using Taylor polynomial approximation (TPA)-assisted reduced-rank technique. It can be shown that the reduced-rank adaptive technique is beneficial to achieving low-complexity, high convergence speed and robust detection in hybrid DS-TH UWB systems. In this contribution bit-error-rate (BER) performance of the hybrid DS-TH UWB systems using proposed reduced- rank adaptive MMSE-MUD is investigated, when communicating over UWB channels modelled by the Saleh-Valenzuela (S-V) channel model. Our simulation results show that the TPA-assisted reduced-rank adaptive MMSE-MUD is capable of achieving a similar BER performance as that of the full-rank adaptive MMSE-MUD but with significantly lower detection complexity.

    ABSTRACT: In this contribution an adaptive detection scheme based on least mean square (LMS) principles is proposed and investigated in the context of the hybrid direct-sequence time-hopping ultrawide bandwidth (DS-TH UWB) systems. The bit-error-rate (BER) performance of the hybrid DS-TH UWB system is investigated when communicating over the UWB channels modelled by the Saleh-Valenzuela (S-V) channel model. Furthermore, since both the pure DS-UWB and pure TH-UWB constitute special examples of the hybrid DS-TH UWB, their BER performance is also investigated in this contribution for the sake of comparison with that of the hybrid DS-TH UWB. Our study and simulation results show that the LMS-aided adaptive detection can be a feasible detection scheme for deployment in practical DS-, TH- or hybrid DS-TH UWB systems. It can be shown that, with the aid of a training sequence of reasonable length, the considered UWB schemes are capable of achieving a BER performance which is close to that achieved by the minimum mean-square error (MMSE) detector with perfect channel knowledge.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper a range of reduced-rank adaptive multiuser detectors (MUDs) are proposed and investigated for the hybrid direct-sequence time-hopping ultrawide bandwidth (DS-TH UWB) systems. The adaptive MUDs are operated based on the recursive least square (RLS) principles. Three types of reduced-rank techniques are investigated, which are the principal component (PC), cross-spectral metric (CSM) and Taylor polynomial approximation (TPA). These reduced-rank adaptive techniques are beneficial to achieving low-complexity, high spectral-efficiency and robust detection in hybrid DSTH UWB systems. In this contribution bit error rate (BER) performance of the hybrid DS-TH UWB systems using proposed reduced-rank adaptive MUDs is investigated by simulations, when communicating over UWB channels modelled by the Saleh-Valenzuela (S-V) channel model. Our simulation results show that, given a sufficiently high rank of the detection subspace, the reduced-rank adaptive MUDs are capable of achieving a similar BER performance as that of the full-rank ideal minimum mean-square error MUD (MMSE-MUD) but with significantly lower detection complexity. Furthermore, the TPA-based reduced-rank adaptive MUD is capable of yielding a better BER performance than the PC- or CSM-based reduced-rank adaptive MUD, when the same but relatively low rank detection subspace is assumed.
