ABSTRACT: To improve system performance and reduce the complexity and cost of receiver hardware, we investigated a new multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) scheme combining maximal-ratio transmitting and receiver antenna selection (MRT/RAS). In this scheme, a single receiving antenna, which maximizes the signalto-noise ratio (SNR) at the receiver, is selected for demodulation. The closed-form outage probability and the bit error rate (BER) of the MRT/RAS system are both presented. The simulation demonstrates that the MRT/RAS scheme can achieve a full diversity order as if all the receiving antennas were used. It is shown that the MRT/RAS scheme outperforms some more complex space-time codes of the same spectral efficiency. The analytical results are verified by simulation. In the end, we also analyze the MRT/RAS system based on partial channel information.Frontiers of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in China 04/2012; 3(4):411-417.
