© 2019 IEEE. Orthogonal time frequency space (OTFS) modulation shows great performance improvement over high-mobility wireless channels compared with traditional orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). In this paper, we first derive the input and output relationship of OTFS signal in the delay-time domain, which shows that OTFS can be regarded as a combination of OFDM and single-carrier frequency-division multiple access (SC-FDMA). We then examine the diversity order of an OTFS system through received signal-to-noise ratio analysis and predict that this modulation technique can potentially achieve full diversity in both delay and Doppler domains. Finally, we simulate the OTFS performance based on 5G tapped-delay-line channel models under both slow and fast fading conditions. Extensive simulation results confirm that OTFS performs significantly better than other modulation techniques in fast fading channels.
