Abstract

A low-power ultrawideband (UWB) pulse generator based on pulsed oscillator architecture for 3-5 GHz applications is proposed. The pulsed oscillator is improved, so it realizes binary phase shift keying (BPSK) modulation. Unlike ON-OFF keying or pulse-position modulation (PPM), BPSK can scramble the spectrum, so it can be used in high pulse rate applications without having spectral line problem. The signal structure in this design is burst mode of PPM+BPSK. The proposed UWB pulse generator was successfully implemented on 0.18-μm CMOS technology. The peak-to-peak amplitude of output pulse is about 220 mV with 50-ω load, the maximum power consumption is 4 mW at a raw data rate of 7.8 Mbps and the energy consumption is 32 pJ/pulse at a pulse rate of 125 Mpulses/s.
