Diversity Combining for Mobile Communications

Abstract

The maximal-ratio combining (MRC) scheme is investigated in detail. Other diversity combining schemes, such as selection combining (SC) and equal gain combining (EGC) are outperformed by MRC in the case of coherent communications. First, the case of M independent fading channels is considered. The output signal-tonoise ratio (SNR) expression is derived, and… (More)
