The Performances of the SSC Combiner Output Signal in the Presence of Nakagami-M Fading
Source: NORTH ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY UNION
Many of the wireless communication systems use some form of diversity combining to reduce multupath fading appeared in the channel. Among the simpler diversity combining schemes, the two most popular are Selection Combining (SC) and Switch and Stay Combining (SSC). It is notable that level crossing rate, outage probability and average time of fade duration of the combiner output signal are very important system performances. In this paper, the level crossing rate, outage probability and fade duration of the SSC combiner output signal in the presence of the Nakagami-m fading are determined. The results are shown graphically for different variance values, decision threshold values and fading parameters values.
