We propose a genetic algorithm (GA) based equalization approach for direct sequence ultra-wideband (DS-UWB) wireless communications, where GA is combined with a RAKE receiver to combat the inter-symbol interference (ISI) due to the frequency selective nature of UWB channels for high data rate transmission. Simulation results show that the proposed GA based structure significantly outperforms the RAKE receiver. It also provides a close bit error rate (BER) performance to the optimal maximum likelihood detection (MLD) approach, while requiring a much lower computational complexity.
