Performance of Diversity in Fading




    Review of Last Lecture                                      Combined outage and average Ps
Outage probability                                                                        Ps( s)        Outage
  Probability that Ps is above target                         P s( s)
  Equivalently, probability       below target
                                                                                                                 Pstarget
                              s
  Used when Tc>>Ts

Average Ps in fast fading:
  Averaged over fast fading distribution
                                                                        Ps( s)
  Good metric when Tc~Ts
  Alternate Q function approach greatly simplifies                 Used in combined shadowing and flat-fading
  calculations (switch integral order, becomes Laplace Xfm)        Ps varies slowly, locally determined by flat fading
Fading severely degrades performance                               Declare outage when Ps above target value




           Doppler Effects                                                           ISI Effects

 High doppler causes channel phase to                            Delay spread exceeding a symbol time
 decorrelate between symbols                                     causes ISI (self interference).
                                                                                 1   2    3   4    5
 Leads to an irreducible error floor for
 differential modulation                                                         0   Ts            Tm

   Increasing power does not reduce error
                                                                 ISI leads to irreducible error floor
                                                                    Increasing signal power increases ISI power
 Error floor depends on BdTs
                                                                 ISI requires that Ts>>Tm (Rs<<Bc)

    Multiple paths unlikely to fade simultaneously




     Diversity Performance                                     MRC and its Performance
Selection Combining (SC)                                      With MRC,           =    i for     branch SNRs                  i
  Combiner SNR is the maximum of the branch SNRs.                Optimal technique to maximize output SNR
                                                                 Yields 20-40 dB performance gains
  CDF easy to obtain, pdf found by differentiating.              Distribution of hard to obtain
  Diminishing returns with number of antennas.
  Can get up to about 20 dB of gain.
                                                              Standard average BER calculation

Maximal Ratio Combining (MRC)

  Optimal technique (maximizes output SNR)                       Integral often diverges
  Combiner SNR is the sum of the branch SNRs.
  Distribution of SNR hard to obtain.                         MGF Approach                       .5     M
                                                                                            1                         g
  Can use MGF approach for simplified analysis.                                       Pb                    Mi          ;      i   d
  Exhibits 10-40 dB gains in Rayleigh fading.                                                     0 i 1
                                                                                                                  sin 2




                Main Points
Doppler spread only impacts differential modulation
causing an irreducible error floor at low data rates
Delay spread causes irreducible error floor or
imposes rate limits

Diversity overcomes the effects of fading by
combining fading paths
Diversity typically entails some penalty in terms of
rate, bandwidth, complexity, or size.
Techniques trade complexity for performance.
  MRC yields 20-40 dB gain, SC around 20 dB.
