Fading is a major impairment in transmitting the signal in wireless communication. Thus, it becomes very necessary to nullify its effect to transmit the signal successfully and so the diversity technique along with its different types is being employed to combat the effect of fading. In this paper, different types of fading and different diversity techniques are being proposed. Diversity is a powerful communication receiver technique that provides wireless link improvement at a relatively low cost. Diversity techniques are used in wireless communications to mitigate the effect of fading over a radio channel.
