Generalized ultra-wide bandwidth (UWB) transmitted reference (TR) receivers proposed previously in the literature are improved with respect to the energy allocation in the data packet and the integration interval length in the correlator. The improvement refers to a best-effort technique to reduce the receiver bit error rate. Simulation results show that the improvement can provide a performance gain of up to 4.2 dB in signal-to-noise ratio. These results give useful guidance on the design of generalized UWB TR receivers.
