Summary, in English

The bit-error rate of a 60 GHz wireless impulse radio link is investigated at a bit-rate of 4 Gbps using on-off keying. The measurement results show that it is possible to have a BER below 10(-12), and the measured BER vs. E-b/N-o is approximately 1 dB from the theoretical value. The reliability of the wideband 60 GHz wavelet generator is furthermore confirmed by studying the number of faulty wavelets generated, and the circuit performance is characterized. The wavelet generator consumes 30 mW and may generate signals with bandwidth exceeding 25 GHz, which may be used to investigate the channel properties at 60 GHz.
