Abstract

This letter investigates the bit error rate (BER) performance of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing index modulation, employing the maximal ratio combining based lowcomplexity greedy detector (MRC-GD) and the PSK modulation. For performance analysis, we derive tight expressions for both index error probability (IEP) and BER, taking into account channel state information (CSI) uncertainty. This allows to provide an insight into various impacts of CSI uncertainty on the diversity gain and error floor of the IEP and the BER, respectively. We clearly show that under imperfect CSI, the MRC-aided GD can perform as like the MRC-maximum likelihood detector, at lower complexity. Finally, simulation results are presented to verify the accuracy of derived expressions and the theoretical analysis.
