This paper presents a reduced-complexity time reversal technique for ultra-wideband (UWB) communications. Time reversal takes advantage of rich scattering environments to achieve signal focusing via transmitter-side processing, which enables the use of simple receivers. The goal of this paper is to demonstrate a UWB time reversal system architecture based on experimental results and practical pulse waveform, taking into account some practical constraints, and to show feasibility of UWB time reversal. Pre-decorrelating in addition to time reversal processing is considered for a downlink multiuser configuration. Multiple transmit antennas are employed to improve the performance.
