Description/Abstract

We analytically characterize the data-aided Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) performance of a Single Input Multiple Output (SIMO) communication system relying on Maximal Ratio Combining (MRC) having either independent or correlated branches that are non-identically distributed. In particular, exact closed form expressions are derived for the EVM in -? fading and -? shadowed fading channels and these expressions are validated by simulations. The derived expressions are expressed in terms of Lauricella’s function of the fourth kind F(N) D (.), which can be easily computed. Furthermore, we have simplified the derived expressions for various special cases such as independent and identically distributed branches, Rayleigh fading, Nakagamim fading and -? fading. Additionally, a parametric study of the EVM performance of the wireless system is presented.
