A chaotic UWB communication system based on IEEE 802.15.4a is proposed for wireless connectivity applications. A compact and simple architecture is implemented by using a chaotic UWB signal and a non-coherent detection scheme. The chaotic UWB signal has noise-like characteristics in time and frequency domains and naturally wide spectrum within a limited bandwidth. The chaotic UWB signal generator is designed on two methods with the bandwidth of 3.1 to 5.1 GHz, and a baseband process is realized on an FPGA including an adaptive decision and a channel code for non-source coded data stream. The system performance is evaluated by transmitting MP3 audio/voice with 32-byte length PSDUs and measuring PERs for assessing the system sensitivity and the interferer compatibility. The proposed system can be an excellent candidate for short-range connectivity services, as well as an inexpensive system with good capability for narrow-band interferences.
