We describe a simplified receiver structure having several receiving antennas (i.e., an adaptive array antenna system) and using time-division-multiplexing (TDM) signal processing. Three simplified receiver structures were investigated for use in the antenna system. To confirm the feasibility of using a TDM receiver, both a TDM receiver and a conventional adaptive array receiver were constructed for testing. In our proposed system, several repetitions of the constant modulus algorithm (CMA) are used to reduce co-channel interference (CCI). The frame format used for both receivers was the same as that of the personal handy phone system in Japan. The laboratory testing was done using a fading simulator to enable measurement of the bit error rate. The results are very promising and show the feasibility of the TDM receiver.
