Provides interesting material to (graduate) students and researchers working in the field of commercial Ultra Wide Band (UWB) wireless communications
Ultra Wideband (UWB) Technology is the cutting edge technology for wireless communications with a wide range of applications. In Introduction to Ultra Wideband for Wireless Communications UWB principles and technologies for wireless communications are explained clearly. Key issues such as UWB wireless channels, interference, signal processing as well as applications and standardization activities are addressed. Introduction to Ultra Wideband for Wireless Communications provides easy-to-understand material to (graduate) students and researchers working in the field of commercial UWB wireless communications. Due to tutorial nature of the book it can also be adopted as a textbook on the subject in the Telecommunications Engineering curriculum. Problems at the end of each chapter extend the reader’s understanding of the subject. Introduction to Ultra Wideband for Wireless Communications will also be useful for practicing engineers from industry who deal with the wireless systems that are designed and analyzed with the UWB technique.
