Analysis of the error performance of adaptive array antennas for CDMA with noncoherent M-ary orthogonal modulation in nakagami fading

Durrani, Salman; Bialkowski, Marek E


This letter presents an analytical model for evaluating the Bit Error Rate (BER) of a Direct Sequence Code Division Multiple Access (DS-CDMA) system, with M-ary orthogonal modulation and noncoherent detection, employing an array antenna operating in a Nakagami fading environment. An expression of the Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) at the output of the receiver is derived, which allows the BER to be evaluated using a closed form expression. The analytical model is validated by...[Show more]
