Receiver having a number of individual digital channels (tines) which can combine these channels to form a stronger received signal.
A receiver technique which exploits multipath phenomenon to improve system performance. Multiple baseband correlators are used to individually process multiple multipath components. The correlator outputs are then added to increase total signal strength.
A radio receiver having multiple receptors using offsets of a common spreading code to receive and combine several multipath time-delayed signals.
A radio receiver designed to counter the effects of multipath fading; commonly used in devices such as mobile phones. Uses several sub-receivers, each slightly delayed, to tune into the individual paths a radio wave follows (multipaths). Each component is later combined to effectively strengthen the signal.

A rake receiver is a radio receiver designed to counter the effects of multipath fading. It does this by using several "sub-receivers" each delayed slightly in order to tune in to the individual multipath components. Each component is decoded independently, but at a later stage combined in order to make the most use of the different transmission characteristics of each transmission path.
