Title: An Ultra-Wide Band Communication System Modeling and Analysis
Author: Mohamed, Nada Abd-Elraheem Abdallah
Abstract: An Ultra Wide-Band (UWB) is a Radio Frequency (RF) technology that transmits binary data, using low energy and extremely short duration impulses over a wide spectrum of frequencies. It delivers data over 15 to 100 meters and does not require a dedicated radio frequency. The aim of this research is to deal with an UWB based Wireless Personal area Network (WPAN), using the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technique due to its ability to cope with several channel conditions. The simulation focused on the physical layer (PHY) of the WPAN, which is the first layer within seven layers based on the Open System Interconnection (OSI) architecture for networks modeling, keeping in mind that the preceding layers might be reconfigured with the precision desired based on the particular application on hands. Electronic devices bearing WPAN technology can communicate within further range, share information and resources with other devices attached to the network, and execute some jobs distantly. WPAN is considered one of the advanced and continuously developing fields which are able to create new applications and directions, and reconstruct rules and measures applied by IEEE. The simulation tool used here is the Matlab 2008 because it has a variety of graphical capabilities, and can be extended through programs written in its own programming language. By the end of the project, it is expected that data will be transferred between home and personal devices within range of 10 meters successfully.
