Diversity Combining via Universal Orthogonal Space-Time Transformations

  title={Diversity Combining via Universal Orthogonal Space-Time Transformations},
  author={E. Domanovitz and U. Erez},
Receiver diversity methods play a key role in combating the detrimental effects of fading in wireless communication and other applications. Commonly used linear diversity methods include maximal ratio combining, equal gain combining and antenna selection combining. A novel linear combining method is proposed where a universal orthogonal dimension-reducing space-time transformation is applied prior to quantization of the signals. The scheme may be considered as the counterpart of Alamouti… Expand

A novel linear combining method is proposed where a universal, i.e., channel independent, orthogonal dimension-reducing space-time transformation is applied prior to quantization of the signals. Expand


Space-Time block codes from orthogonal designs
A generalization of orthogonal designs is shown to provide space-time block codes for both real and complex constellations for any number of transmit antennas and it is shown that many of the codes presented here are optimal in this sense. Expand
Antenna selection for spatial multiplexing systems with linear receivers
A criterion for selecting the optimal antenna subset when linear, coherent receivers are used over a slowly varying channel and use of the post-processing SNRs of the multiplexed streams whereby the antenna subset that induces the largest minimum SNR is chosen. Expand
Space-time block codes: a capacity perspective
Although space-time block codes provide full diversity at low computational costs, it is shown that they incur a loss in capacity because they convert the matrix channel into a scalar AWGN channel whose capacity is smaller than the true channel capacity. Expand

This work designs rate one codes which are quasi-orthogonal and provide partial diversity and the decoder of the proposed codes works with pairs of transmitted symbols instead of single symbols. Expand
Linear Diversity Combining Techniques
Analysis of three types of diversity combining systems in practical use, finding that the simplest possible combiner, the equal-gain system, will generally yield performance essentially equivalent to the maximum obtainable from any quasi-linear system. Expand

This paper presents a simple two-branch transmit diversity scheme that provides the same diversity order as maximal-ratio receiver combining (MRRC) with one transmit antenna, and two receive antennas. Expand
On Instantaneous Relaying
It is illustrated that the proposed PL relaying scheme can improve on sophisticated block Markov encoding when the source-relay link is ill-conditioned (relative to other links) and can work at rates close to those achieved by side-information encoding, but at a much lower complexity. Expand
Optimized Uplink Transmission in Multi-Antenna C-RAN With Spatial Compression and Forward
Numerical results show that, given a total number of antennas to be deployed, multi-antenn C-RAN with the proposed SCF and joint optimization significantly outperforms both massive MIMO and single-antenna C- RAN under practical fronthaul capacity constraints. Expand
Antenna selection in MIMO systems
Classic results on selection diversity, followed by a discussion of antenna selection algorithms at the transmit and receive sides, and extensions of classical results to antenna subset selection are presented. Expand
