Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Receiver diversity combining methods play a key role in combating the detrimental effects of fading in wireless communication and other applications. A novel diversity 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.
