ABSTRACT An antenna selection scheme for multi-input multi-output (MIMO) ultra-wide band (UWB) communication system with time reversal (TR) is investigated in this paper. The system exploits spatial multiplexing (SM) scheme to achieve high data rate. In order to cope with long delay spread of the UWB channel, time reversal technique is adopted. TR can mitigate not only the interference intersymbol (ISI) but also multi stream interference (MSI) caused by transmitting several data streams simultaneously. Antenna selection algorithm allows to reduce the number of transmit antenna by using the channel state information (CSI), which is already available for time reversal. Simulation results show that the algorithm can considerably improve the BER performance of the system when the number of diversity branch is not so large.

    ABSTRACT: Space-time focusing transmission in impulse-radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) systems resorts to the large number of resolvable paths to reduce the inter-pulse interference as well as the multiuser interference, and to simplify the receiver design. In this paper, we study the spatial user capacity of IR-UWB systems with space-time focusing transmission where the users are randomly distributed. We will derive the power distribution of the aggregate interference and investigate the collision probability between the desired focusing peak signal and interference signals. The closed-form expressions of the upper and lower bound of the outage probability and the spatial user capacity are obtained. Analysis results reveal the connections between the spatial user capacity and various system and channel parameters such as antenna gain, frame length, path loss factor, and multipath delay spread, which provide design guidelines for IR-UWB networks.

    ABSTRACT: The time reversal (TR) technique combined with the ultra-wideband (UWB) system offers a new potential for decreasing the cost and complexity of the UWB receivers. In spite of TR–UWB's good performance in perfect channel state information (CSI), it is very sensitive to the channel estimation error. The effect of channel imperfection on the TR–UWB system is considered in this paper. At first, based on a minimum mean square error (MMSE) equalizer receiver, a prefilter is calculated in closed form to improve the performance of the TR–UWB system in an imperfect CSI scenario. Furthermore, for comparison purposes, a similar calculation for prefilter is carried out based on a simple matched filter (MF) receiver. Then, in order to improve the MF receiver performance, a two-stage iteration-based algorithm is developed. The initial value for this iteration-based improved algorithm is considered to be a prefilter which is calculated in the TR–UWB system with MMSE equalizer. This optimized algorithm causes the channel estimation error in the TR–UWB system to become zero in some steps. Finally, exhaustive simulations are done to demonstrate the performance advantage attained by the improved algorithm.
