TR-UWB (Transmitted Reference-Ultra Wide Band) systems have low system complexity since they transmit data with the corresponding reference signals and demodulate the data through correlation using these received signals. However, the BER (Bit Error Rate) performance in the conventional TR-UWB systems is sensitive to the SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) of the reference templates used in the correlator. We propose an improved recursive transceiver structure that effectively minimizes the BER for TR-UWB systems by increasing the SNR of reference templates.
