Cooperative diversity has recently been proposed as a promising technology to achieve spatial diversity in wireless networks. In this paper, we analyze the performance of SNR-based hybrid decode-amplify-forward (HDAF) relaying cooperative diversity networks over independent non-identical flat Rayleigh fading channels with maximum ratio combining (MRC) technique. Closed-form expressions for the outage and bit error probability of the HDAF relaying scheme are derived. Computer simulations are carried out to illustrate and validate the correctness of analytical results. Besides, the impacts of the SNR threshold and relay location on the performances of outage and bit error probability are investigated.
