The antenna diversity mechanism is established as the well known mechanism for reduction of probability of occurrence of communication failures (outages) caused by fades. In receiver diversity, multiple antennas are employed at the receiver side in case of transmitter diversity, multiple antennas are the integral part of transmitter section. In this paper, Maximal Ratio Receiver Combining (MRRC) diversity technique is evaluated to mitigate the effect of fading in IDMA scheme employing random interleaver and prime interleaver with single transmit two receiving antennas in low rate coded environment. For the performance evaluation, channel is assumed to be Rayleigh multipath channel with BPSK modulation. Simulation results demonstrate the significant improvement in BER performance of IDMA with maximal ratio receiver combining (MRRC) diversity along with prime interleaver and random interleaver and it has also been observed that BER performance of prime interleaver is similar to that of random interleaver with reduced bandwidth and memory requirement at transmitter and receiver side.
