In this paper the analysis a new base station receiver is proposed and analyzed for a code-division multiple-access (CDMA) cellular system. The proposed receiver can achieve remarkable diversity gain by increasing diversity order with reasonable cost and complexity. From the numerical results, it is confirmed that the proposed receiver structure can be a practical solution for enhancing reverse-link capacity and improving performance in CDMA cellular system operations. The result in the letter can find its applications to legacy IS-95/cdma 2000 1xbase stations with simple modifications.
