In Ultra WideBand (UWB) High Data Rates(HDR) communications, two modulations schemes are in competition. The first one is an impulse-based BPSK modulation (IR, Impulse Radio). The second one is a Multi-Band Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (MB-OFDM). A third modulation scheme has been proposed by Mitsubishi. It is an Impulse Radio Multi-Band On-Off Keying modulation (MB-OOK), which combines the advantages of the first two modulation schemes. This paper deals with the modeling of a complete UWB MB-OOK link under the Agilent-ADS (Advanced Design System). The focus will be on the receiver’s performance based on non coherent energy detection.
