Abstract: In this paper, we evaluate and compare the SER performance of few quasi-orthogonal space-time block codes (QOSTBCs) with three time slots for two transmit antennas. The decoding used is ML and fading channel is Rician. We observe that codes proposed in [14] performs better than the codes of [6].
Keywords: Orthogonal Space-Time Block Codes (Ostbcs), Quasi-Orthogonal Space-Time Block Codes (Qostbcs), Quasiorthogonal Space-Time Block Codes With 3 Time Slots (3tsqostbcs), Maximum-Likelihood (ML) Decoding, Bit Error Rate (BER), Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A).

Scope of the Article: Measurement & Performance Analysis
