In this paper, space-time block-coded transmission over
frequency-selective fading channels is
investigated. A lower bound for the pairwise error probability for optimum
detection is given. Also, an approximation for the bit-error rate is derived
and compared with simulation results for maximum-likelihood sequence estimation
(MLSE) for the GSM/EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution) system.
Furthermore, a novel design rule
for space-time block codes (STBCs) for frequency-selective fading channels is
provided. A corresponding code is designed and shown to yield higher performance than
Alamouti's code. It is demonstrated that for fading channels with
L independent impulse response coefficients, STBCs designed for the flat fading channel can
achieve at most a diversity order of (NT + L - 1) NR
if NT transmit antennas and NR receive antennas
are used. On the other hand, the maximum diversity order employing the proposed
code design rule is LNTNR.
