This letter presents a method to simulate a phase-included UWB channel impulse responses for a given indoor channel. In this method we decompose a UWB pulse into a finite number of spectral components. This enables the received signal to be determined by the sum of the convolutions between each spectral component and a corresponding frequency-dependent UWB channel impulse response. The ray-tracing algorithm is applied to calculate the amplitude and the phase of each frequency-dependent channel impulse response. Based on the calculated results, we finally show the simulation of the UWB channel impulse response.
