In this paper, the conditions and performance of ideal RAKE reception for time hopping Ultra-Wideband (UWB) investigated. Owing to the complex propagation phenomena and specific-structure of UWB signals, new problems relevant to the operation of RAKE receivers arise. This motivates us to reconsider the conditions under which a RAKE receiver can work effectively with negligible interference between fingers. Key findings are that the conditions not only relate to the property of time hopping...[Show more]
