18 Outline Interference challenges in UWB systems Conventional UWB pulses Hermite and proposed UWB pulse Proposed circuit for pulse implementation Simulation results Conclusion 17

19 Possible interferers in UWB systems Most significant interferer a (5GHz WLAN) Avoiding a – MB-OFDM Eliminating Band #2 – IR-UWB & DS-UWB Using UWB lower Band Using UWB upper Band 18

20 Effects of Narrowband interferers on UWB system SNR (dB) of UWB in the presence of a interferer d UWB - (m) in LOS d a None d UWB - (m) in NLOS d a None

21 Effects of Narrowband interferers on UWB circuit IR-UWB covering the whole band → the interferer is in-band → no pre-filtering → corrupted signal!! Easier in MB-OFDM →the interferer is out of band → pre-filter – 2 nd and 3 rd order modulation of interferer UWB receiver desensitization due to large interferer 20

22 Effects of UWB on Narrowband system SNR in the presence of UWB interferer d a - (m) in NLOS d UWB None Data rate in the presence of UWB interferer d a - (Mbps) in NLOS d UWB None

23 Solution for In-Band interferers of IR-UWB IR-UWB, low power, low complexity compare with MB- OFDM – Of great interest Covering the whole spectrum can be done by designing such a pulse featuring frequency nulls Intended UWB pulse 22

24 Applicable UWB pulses Without 5 GHz CosineAll Cosine Functions Frequency Domain(GHz) Time Domain Gaussian derived pulse : 23

25 Modified Hermite Pulses Hermite polynomials are the finite sum of terms like To be orthogonal Modified Hermite pulse Inherent nulls in the power spectrum of this pulse the main motivation behind this work – Complete Coexistence of UWB and the NB system located in the null 24

26 2 nd order Modified Hermite Modified Hermite Pulse Up-Converted One Frequency Domain(GHz) Time Domain 25

27 Designed Pulse Designed UWB Pulse The major problem is 5 GHz WLAN, 2 nd order Hermit is OK! 2 nd order Hermit pulse modified to be implementable in analog circuits 26

28 Circuit Analysis 6 blocks needed: 1.Square function MOS device square law Trans-linear circuits 2.Exponential function Bipolar device MOS device in sub-threshold region 3.Multiplier for mathematical multiplication 4.Mixer for up converting 5.VCO for cosine function 6.An input ramp stage 27

29 Quadratic Function For a fully quadratic function two long channel MOS devices used, each switches in its cycle 28

30 Overall Circuit 29

31 Important parameters The input DC biasing determines the current R value chosen to keep MOS in saturation The Cosine function determines the null frequency The tuning circuit is placed for fine tuning due to process variation The input ramp determines the BW of the pulse and the number of the nulls in the spectrum 30

32 Simulation results Time domain responseFrequency domain response FCC Indoor Mask 31

33 Fine tuning of the nulls by the gain of the tuning circuit 20 dB gain increase of tuning circuit Tuning circuit normal gain Input ramp for both 32

34 Pulse Characteristics Pulse Properties Pulse BandwidthUp to 12 GHz Number of the nulls2 to 6 nulls in the UWB spectrum Null depthUp to 50 dB Coarse tuningCosine for up-converting Fine tuningInput ramp voltage, Tuning circuit gain Power consumption Quadratic and exponential functions- 4 mA Multiplier and Mixer- 15 mA 33

35 Conclusion The proposed UWB pulse features frequency nulls in the UWB spectrum The pulse can be coarse or fine tuned by the input ramp voltage, frequency of the cosine function and gain of the tuning circuit As a result no SNR degradation would occur for the NB system located in the null, and the NB system wouldn’t be disturbed 34

36 Conclusion No SNR degradation in UWB system will occur because of no overlapping with NB system NB system in the null would be considered out of band and pre-filtering can be done without any loss of data On chip filtering of the NB system can be done since the Q of the filter is relaxed due to the null existence An IR-UWB transceiver covering the whole spectrum can be accomplished 35

37 Future Works Major UWB Limitation – Short distance communications – UWB over Fiber – UWB pulse design with notches in Optics 36

38 New Design of UWB Receiver 37

39 Main challenge in UWB is in Rx: large bandwidth, high required timing precision difficult signal synchronization TX and RX Block Diagram Main difference of all RX topologies Location of ADC ( in A, B or C in RX Block Diagram) Matched filter correlation (coherent or incoherent) Pulse template 38

40 Receiver topologies 1.Fully digital (FD) 4 bit : high power 1 bit : low power but bad performance when interference 2.Transmitted reference (TR) 3.Energy detector(ED) Data pulse as its own reference Self-mixing of the noisy input signal Impossible BPSK (PPM) 4.Flashing high SNR low interference environments 5.Quadrature Analog correlation (QAC) 39

41 40

42 Flashing Receiver topology 41

43  Windowed sine wave as a template in matched filter to avoid complexity (Loss  1dB)  (Input)  (LO)+(windowed integration) = Correlation with windowed sine wave( template) Quadrature Analog correlation receiver (QAC) Quadrature Analog correlation (QAC) 42

44 Simulation Results Bad performance of 1 bit FD in the strong interferer increasing loss of the QAC in more dense multipath channels, due to its simplified channel compensation the excellent performance of the QAC receiver in interference dominated environments 43

45 QAC receiver has excellent EPUB. Comparison between Different Topologies Figure of Merit: “Energy/Useful Bit” or EPUB (the best parameter to tare-off between power and performance) Four channel models 1 path: LOS G: Gaussian Noise i: Interference 44

46 Implementation challenges 1.Template misalignment and clock offset Low Sensitivity and jitter up to 300ps Compensation of Clock offset by tracking the rotation of (I,Q) constellation vector in digital 2.IQ imbalance up to 10 degree can be tolerated 3.Phase noise out-of-band interferers to be mixed inside band Dither around the ideal point in the constellation (noise for tracking loop) 4.ADC resolution 45

47 Flexibility in operation Operation with a 0-960MHz and 3-5GHz front-end Pulses with a bandwidth from 500MHz to 2GHz Pulse period from 20nsec to 200nsec PN code 1 to 63 pulses per bit(PG:0dB to 18dB) Data-rates from 80kbps to 50Mbps Operation phases Acquisition Phase: Channel estimation, Synchronization, RX-TX Clock-offset estimation. Detection Phase: detect the data, clock-offset and tracking Design Considerations 46

48 Measurement Results  Implementation of QAC receiver in 0.18µm 47
