Timing Recovery for Ultra Wideband Systems

Mohammad Ghavami

Abstract

This paper examines the problems of symbol
timing estimation and timing recovery for ultra wideband impulse radio signals. Two different approaches based onthe maximum likelihood technique are investigated. The first approach is based on derivative matched filter and the second one takes advantage of the early-late technique.
Furthermore, two non-coherent timing recovery circuits are proposed and discussed. The first circuit is a digital delay-locked loop (DDLL) and the second circuit is based on early-late technique. Finally, performance analysis of the proposed techniques for IEEE 802.15.3a channel models in terms of the minimum squared error (MSE) is
provided.
