ABSTRACT In this paper, we present a method to obtain a set of orthogonal pulses to be used in pulse-shape modulation (PSM) for ultra-wideband communications. The pulses are built as linear combinations of Hermite functions, which are shown to have unique advantageous features. Mathematical restrictions of orthogonality and spectral efficiency are introduced as guidelines to a fully explained search procedure to find the best set of pulses. Additionally, this procedure is adapted and used to find a single FCC-compliant pulse shape. A quaternary PSM scheme is implemented with orthogonal pulses obtained by the proposed method, and the results of a simulation are shown

    ABSTRACT: 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.

    ABSTRACT: We report the implementation of an all-optical temporal differentiator based on an integrated phase-shifted Bragg grating (PSBG) in a compact single-mode silicon-on-insulator ridge waveguide. The integrated PSBG is designed to have a wide reflection notch by creating deep corrugations on the sidewalls of the ridge. The device is fabricated using a CMOS compatible process with 248-nm deep ultraviolet lithography. An experiment is performed. The use of the integrated PSBG for the implementation of an all-optical temporal differentiator is demonstrated.

    ABSTRACT: Choice of ultra wideband (UWB) pulse shapes has become an interesting challenge such that the spectral limits of the frequency band approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) can be utilised efficiently. In this paper, we compare the efficiency of various UWB pulse shapes based upon their power spectral density (PSD) and autocorrelation functions (ACF). We propose a set of prolate spheroidal wave functions (PSWF) for a typical M-ary pulse shape modulation (PSM) scheme. In the process, we show closed form expressions for the ACF of PSWF-based UWB pulse shapes of different orders.
