Transmit Diversity With More Than Two Antennas

  title={Transmit Diversity With More Than Two Antennas},
  author={R. Michael Buehrer and Robert Soni and Quinn Li},
Recently, a new form of transmit diversity has been developed and included for cdma2000, the third generation successor for IS-95 code division multiple access (CDMA) systems. This transmit diversity scheme was developed by Bell Laboratories and uses Space-Time coding techniques. This paper presents performance results of this new transmit diversity method, termed space-time spreading, and investigates ”open-loop” improvements to the scheme which use more than two antennas. Additionally, we… CONTINUE READING
