In this letter, we compare a Multiple-Input Single-Output (MISO)-Ultra WideBand (UWB)- Impulse Radio (IR) system and a Single-Input Single-Output (SISO)-UWB-IR system at high transmission rates. We evaluate the Bit Error Rate (BER) of the two systems with some RAKE receivers under heavy multipath environments. From the results of our computer simulation, we show that the SISO-UWB-IR system with Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE)-RAKE receiver is a good candidate to achieve high transmission rates.
