Abstract

Ultra Wide Band (UWB) is an emerging technology in the application of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN). Its low power consumption, high band width and high data rate makes it a suitable candidate for transmission of vital physiological signals. Although UWB transmitter is of low power consumption, UWB receiver is complex in design and consumes much higher power than the transmitter. This limitation motivates us to look in to implementation of a mixed physical layer technology for WBAN sensor nodes using a UWB transmitter and a narrowband receiver.
