In this paper, we propose a new concept of receiver structure with diversity reception technique to realize multi-service simultaneous reception, which shares diversity branches between receiving communication services. In the proposed receiver structure, each diversity branch selects the receiving services dynamically according to channel states, and each communication service is always selected by at least one branch to realize multi-service simultaneous reception. A basic algorithm is also described to select combinations of a diversity branch and a receiving communication service. The total number of branches decreases and the effective number of branches per communication service increases, by sharing the branches between communication services in the proposed receiver. Simulation results are shown that the proposed diversity receiver achieves both complexity reduction and performance improvement.
