A simplified implementation of a probabilistic equalizer for impulse radio UWB in high data rate transmission Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper treats the digital design of a probabilistic energy equalizer for impulse radio (IR) UWB receiver in high data rate (100Mbps). The aim of this study is to bypass certain complex mathematical function as a chi-squared distribution and reduce the computational complexity of the equalizer for a low cost hardware implementation. As in Sub-MAP algorithm, the max*operation is investigated for complexity reduction and tested by computer simulation with fixed point data types under 802.15.3a channel models. The obtained results prove that the complexity reduction involves a very slight algorithm deterioration. © 2008 IEEE.
