The interference imposed on conventional narrow-band systems by impulse radio UWB (IR-UWB) signals is examined by simulations. The Dirac delta function is employed to model the IR-UWB signal to reduce simulation costs. The simulation results show that the statistical characteristics of this interference deviate from Gaussian noise when the frequency band of the narrow-band system includes a half multiple of the data symbol rate of the IR-UWB system. In the case of pulse-position-modulation UWB signals and biorthogonal-coded bipolar-modulation UWB signals, the performance degradation of the narrow-band system depends on the number of pulse positions and the number of orthogonal codes, respectively.
