In this paper, we mainly analyze the performance of two ultra wideband communication systems, the classical Time Hopping Binary Pulse Position Modulation (TH-BPPM) UWB system and the Time Hopping Bipolar Pulse Amplitude Modulation (TH-BPAM) UWB system. The performance of TH-BPPM and TH-BPAM is analyzed in detail under an ideal AWGN channel and a correlation receiver. We use the power spectral density function to get the expression of BER of these two UWB systems. It yields simple and exact formulas relating the performance to the system parameters. The analysis shows that TH-BPPM suffers performance degradation with respect to TH-BPAM. Furthermore, we give the computer simulation of both data and image transmission and our simulation results also prove our theoretical analysis.
