A Variable Step Synchronization Acquisition Method for UWB Systems

Xinyu Zhang, Xuejun Sha and Ali Nawaz Khan    

Abstract: The extremely narrow pulses with the order of nanoseconds and multipath in Time Hopping Ultra Wide Band system result in long mean acquisition time as well as low acquisition precision. A novel Variable Step Acquisition scheme, which aims to improve both mean acquisition time and acquisition precision, is proposed. The proposed acquisition scheme employs nonconsecutive search and adjusts searching steps according to several thresholds, which makes the acquisition process a fast acquisition with variable steps, i.e., from large steps to small ones. The mean acquisition time performances of the proposed scheme and conventional acquisition schemes are evaluated and compared. It is evident that proposed acquisition scheme significantly outperforms the conventional ones.
