Iterative low-complexity multiuser detection and decoding for coded UWB systems
In general, ultra wideband (UWB) signals are transmitted using ~'eIYshort pulses m tiIae domain, thus promising very high data rates. In this thesis, a recei'ler structure is proposed for decoding multiuser information data in a convolutionally coded UWB system. The proposed iterative receiver has three stages: a pulse detector, a symbol detector, and a channel decoder. Each of these stages outputs soft values, which are used as a priori information in the next iteration. Simulation results show that the proposed system can provide performance very close to a single-user system.
