- Slot synchronization is the most challenging step for rapid cell search in intercell asynchronous code division multiple access systems such as wide-band code division multiple access (WCDMA). For rapid cell search, it is desirable to design the receiver robust to initial frequency offset and Doppler spread. In this letter, we consider combining schemes for rapid slot synchronization of WCDMA signals in such channel impairments.We propose an inner-slot differential combining scheme that exploits partial correlation of slot synchronization code, making the receiver tolerable to a large amount of initial frequency offset and Doppler spread. Unlike conventional differential combining schemes, the proposed scheme is also applicable to the use of transmit antenna diversity. The detection performance of the proposed combining scheme is analyzed with the use of transmit antenna diversity. Finally, the analytic results are verified by computer simulation.
