Abstract

In this paper we consider the low-complexity detection in hybrid direct-sequence time-hopping ultrawide bandwidth (DS-TH UWB) systems. A reduced-rank adaptive LBER detector is proposed, which is operated in the least bit error-rate (LBER) principles within a detection subspace obtained with the aid of the principal component analysis (PCA)-assisted reduced-rank technique. Our reduced-rank adaptive LBER detector is free from channel estimation and does not require the knowledge about the number of resolvable multipaths as well as that about the multipaths' strength. In this paper the bit error-rate (BER) performance of the hybrid DS-TH UWB system is investigated, when communicating over the UWB channels modelled by the Saleh-Valenzuela (S-V) channel model. Our study and simulation results show that this reduced-rank adaptive LBER detector constitutes a feasible detection scheme for deployment in practical pulse-based UWB systems.
