In this study, the performance of the frequency-modulated differential chaos shift keying (FM-DCSK) ultra-wideband (UWB) system is evaluated through two important system parameters, the guard interval and the integration interval of the integrator, over indoor communication channels. It is found that the existing FM-DCSK UWB system suffers severe performance degradation in the IEEE 802.15.4a low-rate application. To resolve this problem, a new optimising scheme for the integration interval is presented. Simulation results show that the performance of the proposed scheme is significantly improved and becomes insensitive to the data rate. In addition, some notable advantages are evident in the proposed system, such as moderate multiple-access capability and feasible cross-layer optimisation.
