Simulating wideband fading channels, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels, and diversity-combined fading channels often demands the generation of multiple uncorrelated Rayleigh fading waveforms. In this letter, two appropriate parameter computation methods, namely the method of exact Doppler spread (MEDS) and Lp-norm method (LPNM), for deterministic sum-of-sinusoids (SoS) channel simulators are investigated to guarantee the uncorrelatedness between different simulated Rayleigh fading processes. Numerical and simulation results show that the resulting deterministic SoS channel simulator can accurately and efficiently reproduce all the desired statistical properties of the reference model. © 2007 IEEE.
