An Accurate Frame Error Rate Approximation of Coded Diversity Systems
This paper presents an accurate approximation of the frame error rate (FER) of coded wireless communication systems with receiver diversity. The signals at different diversity branches experience non-independent non-identically distributed Rayleigh fading. The FER approximation is obtained with a threshold-based method. The analytical FER approximation is expressed as an explicit function of parameters related to modulation, coding, frame length, and number of diversity branches. Such a parametric FER approximation is different from most existing FER approximations that do not explicitly quantify many of the important parameters. Simulation results show that the proposed FER approximation can accurately predict the FER performance of a wide range of receiver diversity systems.
