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: Quasi orthogonal space time block codes have been proposed to achieve higher symbol transmission rates for more than 2 transmit antennas at the expense of losing the diversity gain. In this paper we propose a method to improve its transmit diversity with one bit feedback. This method useful for extend any space-time code constructed for 4 transmit antennas to M receive antennas. An improvement in transmit diversity is achieved by multiplying each QOSTBC code word with appropriate phase factor which depend on the channel information. Jafarkhani's Quasi Orthogonal Space Time Block Codes as well as its optimal constellation rotated scheme are extended and analyzed.

    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: 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.
