This paper investigates the error performance and precoder design for a bandwidth-efficient bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM) system over a nonorthogonal amplify-and-forward (NAF) half-duplex single-relay channel. A tight union bound on the asymptotic bit error probability (BEP) is first derived for an arbitrary block length of 2N, which corresponds to the case of using a 2N × 2N precoder. This bound provides a useful tool for predicting the error performance. Attention is then paid to… CONTINUE READING
