In this paper, we study the asymptotic performance of absolute-threshold- and normalized-threshold-based generalized selection combining (AT-GSC and NT-GSC) schemes over generalized fading channels for high average signal-to-noise ratios (ASNRs). By evaluating the asymptotic moment-generating function of the threshold-based GSC output SNRs, we derive the diversity and combining gains for AT- and NT-GSCs with a large class of modulation formats and versatile fading conditions, including… CONTINUE READING
