It has been shown that the rank and the determinant of the distance matrices are the design criteria for space-time trellis codes over quasi-static Rayleigh fading channels. Recently, a new design criterion that maximizes only the trace has been proposed for systems with a large product of the numbers of transmit and receive antennas. This criterion is(More)
Space-time codes are usually generated using a generator matrix with 2 columns and mod 4 operations for QPSK modulation with two transmit antennas. A Z<sub>4</sub> convolutional code has also been used to represent these space-time codes. Another way of representing them is to use a conventional binary convolutional code of rate 2/4. The space-time code(More)
