This contribution deals with the application of multi-dimensional modulation (MDM) to UWB systems. As UWB is constrained in terms of energy consumption rather than bandwidth, binary modulation schemes are most attractive. By applying a multi-dimensional mapping scheme to UWB binary modulation, an iterative detector can be employed, operating according to the turbo principle. Mapping schemes with superior asymptotic performance are evaluated for timehopping pulse position modulation and
