This paper proposes an Impulse Radio architecture based on the fast turn-off response of a Step Recovery Diode (SRD). The use of the SRD as a bandwidth widening element means that the driving digital circuitry can be run at slower speeds. As such, this transmitter has the potential to be very simple, low power and capable of generating a multi-gigahertz ultra-wideband (UWB) signal. This transmitter is intended for low data-rate applications such as sensor networks. The focus of this paper will be on the design and analysis techniques used in the project.
