A silicon implementation of a dual antenna mobile station modem for 3G WCDMA is presented. Diversity processing is used to support data rates up to 2Mb/s while reducing power consumption. An average SNR improvement of 7dB has been observed yielding up to a 4× increase in capacity with no change to the existing network infrastructure.
