Ultra-wideband (UWB) is an effective technique that enables coexistence with other radio systems using very short pulses and spread spectrum. However, there are potential interferences among those using the same frequency bands. This paper discusses the effects of interference between pulse-based UWB (p-UWB) and other systems: continuous wave, binary phase-shift keying signal, IEEE802.11a wireless LAN using a 5-GHz band, and multiband orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MB-OFDM). The MB-OFDM is inferentially proposed for personal area networks, as is p-UWB. The FCC has stated that both p-UWB and MB-OFDM systems will use the same band from 3.1 to 10.6 GHz. The bit-error-rate performance is shown assuming that p-UWB and the other systems are utilized at close range. To mitigate the effects of interference to p-UWB from other radio systems, a multicarrier template wave technique is proposed. The multicarrier template wave is approximated with an ordinary pulse waveform by Gabor transform formula and is composed of several subband pulses without interfering bands. The proposed UWB receiver for MB-OFDM interferences can detect their hopping pattern without a priori knowledge from the MB-OFDM transmitter. These techniques are shown to be effective for the systems to coexist.
