Since its introduction the fidelity concept has been
used to evaluate the time behavior of UWB antennas. However,
fidelity has been employed with different meanings. This paper
clarifies the differences between fidelity factor, system fidelity
factor, and fidelity factor of the system. A recently developed
UWB antenna has been taken as a representative one to illustrate
the differences among these concepts.
