We consider relay channels in which the source-destination and relay-destination signals are assumed to be orthogonal and thus have to be recombined at the destination. Assuming memoryless signals at the destination and relay, we propose a low-complexity quantize-and-forward (QF) relaying scheme, which exploits the knowledge of the SNRs of the source-relay and relay-destination channels. Both in static and quasistatic channels, the quantization noise introduced by the relay is shown to be… Expand
