We present a non-coherent wireless communication testing platform for ultra wide-band impulse radio (UWB-IR) with frequency-shift-keying (FSK) on-off-keying (OOK). Both transmitter and receiver platform will be present with a control graphic user interface (GUI) supported by Spartan-3 FPGAs. The transmitter chip is integrated while the receiver is build from off-the-shelf components. Monopole antennas are used in the system. The demonstration shows a transformative wireless communication

The goal of this design is to meet the requirements in the short-range wireless data communication applications with low-power and low-complexity. The radio system exploits the UWB permission from IEEE 802.15.4a standard, and utilize the combination of frequency-shit-keying and on-off-keying as modulation and demodulation methods. The wireless system is able to achieve real-time wireless data transmission without complex construction of the data package. Furthermore, the system can perform asynchronous wireless communication or automatic clock and data recovery without synchronization process. The integrated transmitter was fabricated using TSMC 0.35um CMOS process, with power consumption of 30 mW under 3.3 V supply. The integrated non-coherent transmitter can send data with 30 Mbps. The demonstration system includes a transmitter, a receiver and a graphic user interface.
