A novel transceiver design for ultrawideband (UWB) communication systems using the channel phase precoding (CPP) technique is proposed in this work. With the CPP-UWB transceiver, we encode data symbols using the reversed order of the channel phase. A simple phase estimation algorithm is presented for the CPP-UWB implementation. Owing to its ability to coherently combine the channel magnitude of every multipath, the CPP-UWB transceiver can achieve a higher data rate by shortening its symbol duration with a tolerable interference. The performance of the CPP-UWB can be further improved using an optimal code length and/or the MMSE receiver to suppress intersymbol interference.
