Abstract—This paper characterizes the performance of Time Hopping Binary Phase-shift Keying (TH-BPSK) multiple access schemes for Ultra Wideband (UWB) communications by validating an analytical study based on the bit error probability (BER) evaluation versus signal to noise ratio (SNR). Analysis of TH-BPSK is assessed over the approach used in  for a Time Hopping Binary Pulse Position Ultra-Wideband Modulation scheme (TH BPPM-UWB) and a comparison is made between both. For communicating over an AWGN channel, the simulation results show that the BPSK modulation performance’s is better than that of the PPM for all values of SNR.
