  • A discrete finite time domain pulse is designed under the constraint of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) ultrawideband (UWB) spectral mask. This pulse also enjoys the advantage of having a linear phase over the frequency band of interest and is orthogonal to its shifted version of one or more baud time. The finite time pulse is designed by an optimization method and concentrates its energy in the allowed bands specified by the FCC. Finally, an example is presented to illustrate how these types of wideband pulses can be transmitted and received with little distortion.
