Performance Analysis of SSK in AF Relay over Transmit Correlated Fading Channels

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 571)


In this study, the error performance of a space shift keying (SSK) system with amplify-and-forward (AF) protocols on transmit correlated dual-hop channels over Rayleigh fading environments is analyzed, we obtain an average bit error rate (BER) expression in closed-form. The correctness of the analytical results is validated by simulations.
