The conventional transmit diversity schemes, such as Alamouti scheme, use several radio frequency (RF) chains to transmit signals simultaneously from multiple antennas. In this paper, we propose a low-complexity repetition time-switched (RTSTD) transmit diversity algorithm, which employs only one RF chain as well as a low-complexity switch for transmission. A mathematical model is developed to assess the performance of the proposed scheme. In order to make it applicable for practical applications, we also investigate its joint application with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and channel coding techniques to combat frequency selective fading. © 2011 IEEE.
