Ultra Wideband (UWB) radiation is a revolutionary wireless
technology for transmitting digital data at very high rates
and with very low power spread over a very wide frequency
band. The same technology is also applicable to remote sensor
systems, such as automotive radar or remote fault detection.
This workshop will concentrate on recent advances in research
and development work related to UWB communication systems.
A number of technical issues will be discussed by distinguished
speakers in this area. Particular areas which are planned
to be addressed include the measurement and modeling of UWB
channels, the special requirements on the design and implementation
of broad band antennas, chip design and fabrication as well
as operational issues, such as capacity and system performance.
Topics to be covered include:
- Unified view of UWB systems
- Measurement and Modeling of UWB channels
- Special requirements for antennas
- Chip design, fabrication, and operation
- Interference and capacity
- System performance and evaluation
