Multiple-Decision-Feedback Detection for STBC Over Time-Selective Fading Channels

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper introduces an efficient Multiple-Decision Feedback (MDF) detection for Space Time Block Code (STBC) over time-selective fading channels. The MDF detection performs several Decision-Feedback (DF) detections for the most probable points obtained by a Log-Likelihood Ratio (LLR) based bit flipping scheme. Simulation results show that, with reasonable complexity, the MDF detection provides near Maximum Likelihood (ML) performance by achieving the considerable SNR gain, compared with the existing DF detections. Space Time Block Code (STBC) by Alamouti is a well known technique to improve the performance of wireless communication systems with its simple decoding structure.
