ABSTRACT In this letter, a novel general design method of quasi-orthogonal space-time block codes for four antennae is presented. Comparison with the design method proposed by Jafarkhani, this method enlarges the number of quasi-orthogonal space-time block codes. The performance of these codes is also analyzed and the simulation results show that it is similar to even better than that of the codes proposed by Jafarkhani.

    ABSTRACT: During the last few years, a number of Quasi-Orthogonal Space-Time Block Codes (QOSTBC) have been proposed for using in multiple transmit antennas systems. In this letter, based on circulant matrix, we propose a novel method of extending any QOSTBC constructed for 4 transmit antennas to a closed-loop scheme. We show that with the aid of multiplying the entries of QOSTBC code words by the appropriate phase factors which depend on the channel information, the proposed scheme can improve its transmit diversity with one bit feedback. The performances of the proposed scenario extended from Jafarkhani's QOSTBC as well as its optimal constellation rotated scheme are analyzed. The simulation results suggest that there is a significant Eb/No advantage in the proposed scheme which is able to be designed easily.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we propose a linear decoupling scheme for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna systems where spatial diversity is exploited through complex orthogonal (COD) or quasi-orthogonal (CQOD) designs. The proposed scheme is based on rewriting the space-time block code (STBC) in an alternative form via generalized permutation matrices (GPM) and transforming the original system to an equivalent one, where all the transmitted symbols are decoupled, allowing thus a single symbol or symbol pair-wise maximum likelihood decoding (MLD) through a closed form expression (CFE).

    ABSTRACT: By studying the super-orthogonal space-time coding designs for 2 transmit antennas and superquasi orthogonal space-time coding designs for 4 transmit antennas, a novel super-orthogonal space-time coding design for 4 transmit antennas is proposed. By exploiting the inherent structure association between OSTBC and QOSTBC, the proposed schemes can obtain the full-rate and good performance while keeping the coding complexity as super-orthogonal space-time coding schemes for 2 transmit antennas. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed schemes outperforms the existing super-quasi orthogonal space-time coding schemes by almost 2 dB.
