Distributed orthogonal space-time block codes with adaptive diversity gain
Chin, Yiyong, Jayalath, Dhammika, & Senadji, Bouchra (2010) Distributed orthogonal space-time block codes with adaptive diversity gain. In Proceedings of 4th International Conference on Signal Processing and Communication Systems (ICSPCS'2010), IEEE, Radisson Resort, Gold Coast, Queensland.
In this paper we present a novel distributed coding protocol for multi-user cooperative networks. The proposed distributed coding protocol exploits the existing orthogonal space-time block codes to achieve higher diversity gain by repeating the code across time and space (available relay nodes). The achievable diversity gain depends on the number of relay nodes that can fully decode the signal from the source. These relay nodes then form space-time codes to cooperatively relay to the destination using number of time slots. However, the improved diversity gain is archived at the expense of the transmission rate. The design principles of the proposed space-time distributed code and the issues related to transmission rate and diversity trade off is discussed in detail. We show that the proposed distributed space-time coding protocol out performs existing distributed codes with a variable transmission rate.
