Abstract-- This paper investigates the performance of Ultra-
Wideband (UWB) correlator receivers for Gaussian monocycles
under the condition of equal mean power and provides con-
structive reference to the selection of pulses. Several channel
situations are examined including ideal single user AWGN
channel, non-ideal synchronous, multipath fading and multiple
access interference. Both numerical and analytical techniques
show that the shape of pulses have notable impact on the
performance of correlator receivers, especially on the interference
resistance ability and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the output.
The results are also extended to the field of fractional bandwidth
to better understand the possible relationship between fractional
bandwidth and correlator receivers.
