Main Article Content
In this paper, an unifyied analysis is proposed for the compact receiver with spatial diversity. A maximum ratio combining receiver for linear antenna arrays is considered with the modulation scheme theta-QAM. The mathematical development takes into account parameters related to the physical structure of the array as well as the probability distribution used for modeling the direction of arrival (DoA) of the signals in the array. Von Mises and Gaussian distributions are considered for characterizing the DoA. The unification of all those results in exact expressions for evaluating the symbol error probability (SEP) in the output of a MRC receiver is the main contribution of the work.
