In this article an optimization of the on-air transmitted UWB signal is performed. This is achieved by designing an adapted filter, that not only restricts the signal to the mask given by the regulations, but also allows to compensate the non-ideal behavior of the UWB components at the transmitter side. Since for UWB transmission the power spectral density is limited, by optimizing the on-air transmitted UWB spectrum it will be possible to have an improvement of the transmitted power and hence of the transmission performance.
