Performance of differential Space-time Block Coded MIMO System using Cyclic Delay Diversity


Multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system can increase data rate, capacity and bit error rate (BER) performance compare to traditional single antenna system. However MIMO technique is pointed out the problem that has high complexity to design receiver. So a recent trend of research on the MIMO system pays more attention to simplified implementation of receiver structure. In this paper, we propose differential space time block code (STBC) for MIMO system with cyclic delay diversity (CDD). This structure can provide a very close performance to that of the conventional diversity scheme with maximum likelihood (ML) detection without channel estimation block while the receiver structure is highly simplified. Bit error rate (BER) performance of the proposed system is simulated for an AWGN channel by theoretical and simulated approaches. The results of this paper can be applicable to the 4G mobile multimedia communication systems.
