Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology has recently attracted the entire wireless community with its great potential for short-range and high data-rate communications. On the other hand, multiantenna (or multiple-input multiple-output) techniques are considered as an effective way to improve the link reliability and transmission rate. In this paper, both aspects are studied through a complete UWB single-input multiple-output (SIMO) channel sounding campaign. The time-domain channel sounder with its antenna array is firstly detailed. Secondly, measurement results will be used to describe interesting antenna array effects and channel behavior (like correlation results and underlying spatial diversity). Finally, in order to show the utility of spatial diversity in UWB systems, the performance of a SIMO system with a Rake receiver will be presented through bit error rate simulations based on measurement results.
