Abstract

In a frequency-selective fading channel, the performance of non-spread-spectrum single-carrier (SC) transmission degrades significantly due to severe intersymbol interference (ISI). The joint use of space-time transmit diversity (STTD), receive antenna diversity and frequency-domain minimum mean square error (MMSE) equalisation in non-spread SC transmission is studied. Space-time encoding and decoding for frequency-domain MMSE equalisation and receive antenna diversity is presented. The achievable bit error rate (BER) performance of non-spread SC transmission is evaluated by computer simulation. It is found that joint use of STTD, receive antenna diversity and frequency-domain MMSE equalisation can significantly improve the BER performance in a severe frequency-selective fading channel.
