|Abstract: ||Diversity transmission is an effective technique to combat fading channels and this thesis introduces two main ideas. Firstly, a novel precoding technique is proposed to achieve diversity transmission and improve bit error rate (BER) performance over the existing linear constellation precoding (LCP) techniques. Experimental and theoretical results are presented to show that the proposed precoding schemes can outperform the existing LCP schemes in various fading channels and additive white Gaussian noise channels. Secondly, an interleaving technique to further improve the BER performance is proposed. The proposed diversity transmission techniques are implemented for both single-carrier and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. The second part of the thesis focuses on the pairwise error probability analysis of the proposed and LCP schemes when receivers have imperfect channel state information (CSI). The BER performance of the proposed precoding and interleaver scheme are investigated in OFDM systems with minimum mean square error channel estimators and single-carrier systems with basis expansion model based channel estimators. It is demonstrated that while precoding schemes designed for receivers with perfect CSI yield near-optimum BER performance in the former system, the proposed phase-shift keying based precoding schemes perform well in the latter system. In both cases, the proposed precoding scheme, combined with the novel interleaving technique, outperforms the existing LCP schemes.|
