Ng, S.X., Liu, W., Wang, J., Tao, M., Yang, L.-L. and Hanzo, L (2007) Performance Analysis of Iteratively Decoded Variable-Length Space-Time Coded Modulation At IEEE ICC'07, United Kingdom. 24 - 28 Jun 2007. , pp. 5921-5926.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


It is demonstrated that iteratively Decoded Variable Length Space Time Coded Modulation (VL-STCM-ID) schemes are capable of simultaneously providing both coding gain as well as multiplexing and diversity gain. The VL-STCM-ID arrangement is a jointly designed iteratively decoded scheme combining source coding, channel coding, modulation as well as spatial diversity/multiplexing. In this contribution, we analyse the iterative decoding convergence of the VL-STCM-ID scheme using symbol-based three-dimensional EXIT charts. The performance of the VL-STCM-ID scheme is shown to be about 14.6 dB better than that of the Fixed Length STCM (FL-STCM) benchmarker at a source symbol error ratio of 10?4, when communicating over uncorrelated Rayleigh fading channels. The performance of the VL-STCM-ID scheme when communicating over correlated Rayleigh fading channels using imperfect channel state information is also studied.
