Abstract

Ultra-wideband (UWB) radio systems have drawn a lot of attention during the last few years. These systems use very low transmission power, spread over a bandwidth of several gigahertz. The very low transmission power and the large bandwidth used enable UWB radio systems to coexist with other narrowband systems over the same frequency band without interfering with the narrowband systems. Nevertheless, these narrowband systems may cause interference which jams the UWB receiver completely. Since standard narrowband interference suppression techniques are not applicable, techniques for interference suppression have to be developed. This paper presents novel narrowband interference suppression algorithms for UWB radio systems. Theoretical analysis of these algorithms reveal that they can eliminate the narrowband interference almost completely.
