AbstractThe project, carried out within the Network Computing Group of National Research Council's Institute for Information Technology in Ottawa, involved the application of the latest ultra-wideband technology to a telecommunications system. Ultra-wideband wave shapes are ultrashort non-sinusoidal and thus fundamentally cover a very broad section of the frequency spectrum. Because of the very low duty factor of these pulses, the resulting average signal strength is also very weak.The project was part of the construction of a transmitter-receiver system using ultra-wideband technology that enabled wireless communication between the serial ports of two workstations. The work carried out for this thesis project involved researching this new technology and spread-spectrum systems as well as the theoretical design, using a simulation tool, of a unidirectional ultra-wideband transmitter-receiver system. The simplified model of the simulated system operates well in the present context.
