In this paper, theoretical limits on time delay estimation are studied for ultra-wideband (UWB) cognitive radio systems. For a generic UWB spectrum with dispersed bands, the Cramer-Rao lower bound (CRLB) is derived for unknown channel coefficients and carrier-frequency offsets (CFOs). Then, the effects of unknown channel coefficients and CFOs are investigated for linearly and non-linearly modulated training signals by obtaining specific CRLB expressions. It is shown that for linear modulations with a constant envelope, the effects of the unknown parameters can be mitigated. Finally, numerical results, which support the theoretical analysis, are presented. © 2008 IEEE.
