Space-Time Block Coded and IQ-interleaved TCM, TTCM, BICM and BICM-ID Assisted OFDM

Ng, S.X., Liew, T.H. and Hanzo, L. (2003) Space-Time Block Coded and IQ-interleaved TCM, TTCM, BICM and BICM-ID Assisted OFDM At of VTC'2003 (Fall), United States. 06 - 09 Oct 2003.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Space-Time Block Coded (STBC) In-phase Quadrature-phase (IQ)-interleaved Coded Modulation (CM) schemes are proposed for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). Trellis Coded Modulation (TCM), TurboTCM(TTCM), Bit-Interleaved Coded Modulation (BICM) and Iteratively Decoded BICM (BICM-ID) schemes having a similar decoding complexity are employed in conjunction with 16-level Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (16QAM) for yielding an effective throughput of 3 information bits per symbol. The IQ-diversity attained by the proposed schemes provides a significant additional coding gain. It was found that TTCM and BICM-ID assisted STBC-IQ-OFDM were the best schemes in terms of the achievable bit error ratio and frame error ratio, respectively.
