English abstract:
This paper discusses and analyses the hardware
implementation of an ultra-wideband (UWB) beamformer
for UWB Impulse Radio data transmission. We use
a complex programmable logic device (CPLD) acting as the
binary baseband information source. The CPLD provides
input to a pulse shaper and subsequently to a four-element
array of UWB antennas. This smart antenna system
comprises the digital baseband part, the radio-frequency
frontend, and the antenna array. For this contribution, we
discuss the design, implementation, and UWB measurement
results obtained in an anechoic chamber.
