The symbol-error rate (SER) of a quadrature subbranch hybrid selection/maximal-ratio combining (QBHS/MRC) scheme for 1-D modulations in Rayleigh fading is examined. At the receiver, N diversity branches are split into 2N in-phase and quadrature subbranches. Traditional hybrid selection/maximal-ratio combining (H-S/MRC) is then applied over the 2N subbranches. M-ary pulse amplitude modulation, including coherent binary phase-shift keying, with QBHS/MRC is studied. The SER performances of QBHS… CONTINUE READING
