Abstract:

Error rates for square-law combining receivers operating with random phase, non-fading channels are calculated and discussed. Practical applications include the selection of code work parameters and specifying the required degree of diversity for receivers with multiple inputs. Combining losses and combining inefficiency are examined. Both binary and M-ary signalling are considered.
