Description/Abstract

In this contribution, we propose a purely symbolbased LDPC-coded scheme based on a Space-Time Block Coding (STBC) signal construction method that combines orthogonal design with sphere packing, referred to here as (STBCSP). We demonstrate that useful performance improvements may be attained when sphere packing aided modulation is concatenated with non-binary LDPC especially, when performing purely symbol-based turbo detection by exchanging extrinsic information between the non-binary LDPC decoder and a rate-1 non-binary inner precoder. We also investigate the convergence behaviour of this symbol-based concatenated scheme with the aid of novel non-binary Extrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) Charts. The proposed symbol-based turbo-detected STBC-SP scheme exhibits a ’turbo-cliff’ at Eb/N0 = 5.0dB and achieves an Eb/N0 gain of 19.2dB at a BER of $10^{ - 5}$ over Alamouti’s scheme.
