Cyclic delay diversity (CDDx) is a simple multiple antenna technologyxs which provides additional diversity in Rayleigh fading channels, and therefore, improves the system performance. We recall the principles of CDD and discuss the properties and impact of this transmit (TX) antenna diversity technology. Different applications motivate variations of the CDD principle. This variants are briefly introduced and discussed. We show the application to several types of wireless systems, in particular terrestrial digital video broadcasting, cellular mobile radio communications systems and a wireless communications system using adaptive bit loading (ABL). Simulation results highlight the benefits of CDD for these kind of systems. Copyright © 2008 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
