Implementation of Adaptive MMSE Rake Receiver

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 199)


Several types of Rake Receivers like A-Rake, S-Rake, P-Rake, Adaptive frequency Rake, Time frequency Rake, Conventional MMSE Rake and Adaptive MMSE rake are used for WCDMA. In this paper we observed that the BER performance of the Adoptive MMSE Rake receiver gives better result in WCDMA. The comparative analysis proved that the Adaptive MMSE Rake Receiver is much better than Conventional Rake Receiver. Both Genetic Algorithm (GA) and as well as Conventional algorithm are derived for WCDMA environment.
