Abstract

Receiver diversity combining methods play a key role in combating the detrimental effects of fading in wireless communication and other applications. Commonly used linear diversity combining methods include maximal-ratio combining, equal-gain combining and antenna selection. 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. The scheme may be considered as the counterpart of Alamouti modulation, and more generally of orthogonal space-time block codes.
