Code shift keying impulse modulation for UWB communications
In this paper the system performance of M-ary code shift keying (MCSK) impulse modulation is studied in detail and compared to M-ary pulse position modulation (MPPM) under single- and multi-user scenarios. For that bounds on the semi-analytic symbol-error rate (SER) expressions are derived and simulation studies are conducted. When practical implementations of MCSK and MPPM are considered it is shown that MCSK can provide about 2 dB performance gain over MPPM as it reduces the effects of multipath delays on the decision variables by randomizing locations of the transmit pulse.
