This paper investigates the information theoretic capacity of spread spectrum Pulse Position Modulation (PPM) Ultra Wideband (UWB) communications for single user channels. The capacity is evaluated for a Rake receiver based on uniform sampling and single bit sampling quantization. This Rake architecture denoted as the Single Bit Rake receiver (SBR). The propagation channel is modeled with a link impulse response with delay spread and Inter Pulse Interference (IPI). IPI noise is considered as a function of decay rate of channel impulse response. Capacity per pulse of SBR is developed as a function of block out period and Frame length. There is a structured imposed on chip period such that there is only a portion of frame length that is eligible for transmission of a pulse. The intuitive motivation for the block out period is to reduce the IPI, however, as shown, the capacity is actually optimum with no block out period.
