Claims

1. A wireless communication apparatus having a plurality of antennas and for diversity-combining signals received by the plurality of antennas, comprising:

a first combining unit for combining received power of the plurality of antennas based on a first algorithm;

a second combining unit for combining received power of the plurality of antennas based on a second algorithm, which is different from the first algorithm;

a determination unit for determining whether there is a delayed wave based on the received signals; and

a control unit for selecting either one of the first combining unit and the second combining unit depending on a determination result by the determination unit and controlling a selected combining unit to combine received power of the plurality of antennas.


  2. The wireless communication apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the first combining unit, which is adopted when the determination unit determines that there is no delayed wave, weights and combines signals received by the plurality of antennas using a minimum mean square error method, and
the second combining unit, which is adopted when the determination unit determines that there is a delayed wave, calculates combining weight ratios based on received power of the plurality of antennas, and based on the calculated combining weight ratios, weights and combines signals received by the plurality of antennas.
  3. The wireless communication apparatus according to claim 2, wherein the combining weight ratio is calculated as an antenna reliability ratio for each antenna based on an antenna combined amplitude of received power of the plurality of antennas and an amplitude of received power of each antenna, and signals received by respective antennas are weighted based on corresponding antenna reliability ratios, respectively, and combined.
  4. The wireless communication apparatus according to claim 1, wherein signals received by the plurality of antennas to be combined by the first combining unit and the second combining unit are Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexed (OFDM) reception signals.
  5. The wireless communication apparatus according to claim 1, wherein
the determination unit comprises a calculation unit for calculating an impulse sequence by performing discrete Fourier transform on respective signals received by the plurality of antennas, and
determines whether there is a delayed wave based on a gain ratio between a main arrival wave and an arrival wave with a delay and a time difference between the main arrival wave and a last arrival wave with a delay in the impulse sequence calculated by the calculation unit.
  6. The wireless communication apparatus according to claim 5, wherein
the determination unit determines that there is no delayed wave when the gain ratio and the time difference in the impulse sequence calculated by the calculation unit are less than corresponding thresholds, respectively, and
determines that there is a delayed wave when at least one of the gain ratio and the time difference is equal to or more than the corresponding threshold.
  7. A wireless reception method for diversity-combining signals received by a plurality of antennas, comprising:

combining received power of the plurality of antennas based on a first algorithm or a second algorithm depending on whether there is a delayed wave, wherein the second algorithm is different from the first algorithm.
