The generation of multiple uncorrected Rayleigh fading waveforms is often demanded for simulating wideband fading channels, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels, and diversity-combined fading channels. In this letter, an improved deterministic sum-of-sinusoids (SoS) channel simulator with a new parameter computation method is proposed to simulate a large number of uncorrected Rayleigh fading processes. Compared with the existing SoS channel simulators, the proposed deterministic SoS model yields a much better simulation efficiency while still preserving satisfactory approximations to the desired statistical properties of the reference model. © 2008 IEEE.
