|9. A system for receiving data having symbols, with the data having symbols demultiplexed into a plurality of subchannels of data, with the plurality of subchannels of data spread-spectrum processed as a plurality of spread-spectrum-subchannel signals, respectively, with the plurality of spread-spectrum-subchannel signals radiated, using radio waves, from a plurality of antennas as a plurality fo spread-spectrum signals, respectively, with the plurality of spread-spectrum signals passing through a communications channel having multipath, thereby generating, from the plurality of spread-spectrum signals, at least a first spread-spectrum signal having a first channel of data arriving from a first path of the multipath, and a second spread-spectrum signal having a second channel of data arriving from a second path of the multipath, comprising:
|97. A receiver system for recovering data conveyed in data symbols by a plurality of different signals transmitted on separate carrier waves from a single source over a wireless channel, said signals being differentiated by different codes conveyed along with said signals, comprising:
|a plurality of receiver antennas (Fig.3 – RA1-RA4) for receiving the first spread-spectrum signal and the second spread-spectrum signal;
|plural receiving antennas (Fig.7 – RA1、RA2、RA3) for receiving said signals;
|a plurality of despreading devices (Fig.3 – 24-54、25-55、26-56、27-57) for detecting, at each receiver antenna of the plurality of receiver antennas, the first spread-spectrum signal and the second spread-spectrum signal, as a first plurality of detected spread-spectrum signals and a second plurality of detected spread-spectrum signals, respectively; and
|receiver circuitry (Fig.7 – 24-26、34-36、44-46) connected to each receiving antenna for demodulating said received signals and for separating said signals by detecting said different codes conveyed in said signals;
|a plurality of combiners (Fig.3 – 161-164) for combining, from each receiver antenna of the plurality of receiver antennas, each of the first plurality of detected spread-spectrum signals, thereby generating a first combined signal, and for combining, from each receiver antenna of the plurality of receiver antennas, each of the second plurality of detected spread-spectrum signals, thereby generating a second combined signal.
|combiner circuits (Fig.7 - 761、762、763) for combining received data symbols transmitted in signals with the same code and received by different receiving antennas, thereby forming plural streams of combined data symbols; and
|a multiplexer (Fig.7- 765) for multiplexing data derived from said plural streams of combined data symbols to form a single stream of data.
