Amit Hooda, Ankur Aggarwal, Alberto Tarable . EXIT Chart Optimization for a Serial Concatenation of an SCCC and a Space-time Trellis Code. Mobile and Embedded Technology International Conference 2013. MECON, 1 (February 2013), 8-12.
In this paper, we face the design of a space-time trellis code (STTC) to be used in serial concatenation with an SCCC, in order to be iteratively decoded at the coherent receiver. Both Rayleigh and Rice MIMO fading channels are considered. EXIT charts are the key design tool that has been used to optimize the STTC. Simulation results show indeed the advantage of using a recursive STTC w. r. t. using a nonrecursive STTC or even simple spatial multiplexing.
