This letter proposes a simple combined coding and modulation based on super-orthogonal convolutional codes (SOCs) in order to support both coherent and non-coherent ultra-wideband (UWB) receivers. In the proposed scheme, the coherent receivers obtain a coding gain as large as the SOC while simultaneously supporting non-coherent receivers. In addition, their performance can be freely adapted by changing the encoder constraint length and the number of PPM slots according to its application. Thus, the proposal enables a more flexible system design for low data-rate UWB systems.
