Ultra-Wideband (UWB) has the potential to become a viable and competitive wireless technology for short-range high rate Wireless personal area networks (WPANs) as well as lower-rate and low power causing low cost devices and networks. This paper discusses properties of Gaussian pulses and derivatives thereof used for UWB signalling. The power spectral density(PSD) of signals sent into channel appear as discrete components resembling spikes with amplitudes that could adversely interfere with

PSD for Time Hopping UWB (TH-UWB) signals using PPM (Pulse Position Modulation) technique is derived and simulated in the MATLAB 7.0 environment. Results show that TH-UWB PPM is a potential candidate for the fourth generation broadband wireless networks. Finally, it is established that the introduction of randomness into transmitted signal has the effect of decreasing the amount of interference power.
