Abstract

We propose an online signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) estimation scheme for Nakagami- fading channels with branch equal gain combining (EGC) diversity.We derive the SNR estimate based on the statistical ratio of certain observables over a block of data, and use the SNR estimates in the iterative decoding of turbo codes on Nakagami- fading channels with branch EGC diversity. We evaluate the turbo decoder performance using the SNR estimate under various fading and diversity scenarios ( = 0, 5, 1, 5 and = 1, 2, 3) and compare it with the performance using perfect knowledge of the SNR and the fade amplitudes.
