An experimental demonstration of 2.5 Gbit/s real-time ultra-wideband transmission is presented, using a Schottky diode-based envelope detector fabricated ad-hoc using microstrip technology on a Rogers6002 substrate and surface-mount components. Real-time transmission with a BER below FEC threshold is achieved for 20 cm of wireless transmission at 2.5 Gbit/s and 50 cm at 1.25 Gbit/s.
