A tractable and compact closed-form expression on the channel-averaged signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) is derived for M-ary orthogonal coded/balanced transmitted-reference (BTR) systems, taking into consideration both inter-pulse interference (IPI) and multiple-access interference (MAI) in dense multipath ultra-wideband (UWB) channels. The UWB channel here is a realistic and standard one with lognormal channel gain distribution and double independent Poisson arrival distribution of cluster and ray. Hence, the analytical framework developed here can be applied to typical UWB channel models, especially considering the channel sparseness and cluster overlapping observed in realistic UWB channels. Based on the channel-averaged SINR, the effect of inter-pulse distance (between the reference and data pulses in BTR) on the multiuser performance is fully investigated. A proper selection of user-specific inter-pulse distances in multiuser scenario is then determined to maximize the user capacity for a given UWB channel.
