Abstract

This letter takes a new approach to extract a closed-form expression for the bit error rate (BER) of direct-sequence ultra wideband (DS-UWB) system. In the analysis, the main signal is impaired by multi-user interference (MUI) and an external source of interference originated by simultanously transmitting multiband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MB-OFDM) systems which are located in the vicinity of the DS-UWB receiver. All the transmission channels are affected by Nakagami-m fading. A Laplacian distribution is considered for MUI to comply more with real statistical behaviors of this kind of interference.
