The influence of clock frequency offset between transmitter and receiver of IR UWB (Impulse Radio Ultra Wide Band) system is talked about in this study. Firstly, this study highlight the fact that clock frequency offset in UWB system will decrease the performance of the coherent receiver and then the necessity of frequency offset estimation before acquisition step is stated. To improve the acquisition failure situation caused by frequency offset, a new acquisition structure with frequency offset estimation, as well as a new method to estimate frequency offset, is proposed. The scheme employs the characteristics of the symmetry and linearity of correlation to approximate the frequency offset in a range of searching area and has good accuracy. As the simulation results reveal, the proposed acquisition structure with frequency offset estimation outperforms the traditional acquisition system and the acquisition failure caused by frequency offset is improved greatly.
