BER analysis of Impulse Radio Ultra Wideband (IRUWB) pulse modulations over S-V channel model is proposed in this paper. The UWB pulse is Gaussian monocycle pulse modulated using Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM) and Pulse Position Modulation (PPM). The channel model is generated from a modified S-V model. Bit-error rate (BER) is measured over several of bit rates. The result shows that all modulation are appropriate for both LOS and NLOS channel, but PAM gives better performance in bit rates and SNR. Moreover, as standard of speed has been given for UWB, the communication is appropriate with high bit rates in LOS channel.<\/p>\r\n","references":"[1] FCC 04-48 \"First Report and Order in the Matter of Revision of Part\r\n15 of the Commission-s Rules Regarding Ultra-wideband Transmission\r\nSystems.\" Feb.14, 2002.\r\n[2] R.
