This paper proposes a precoding scheme over multiple cooperative frames to exploit time and cooperative diversities over a non-orthogonal amplify-and-forward (NAF) half-duplex single-relay Rayleigh fading channel. Focusing on a coded system under the framework of bit interleaved coded modulation (BICM), we first derive a union bound on the bit error probability (BEP) of the proposed system. It is shown that the diversity gain function is the (Nf ·dH)th power of that of uncoded cooperative… CONTINUE READING
