Performance Evaluation of Space Time Trellis Code by Simulation in MATLAB

Vinod Kumar, Rajeev Ratan


In this paper, to evaluate the performance of space-time trellis code we calculate pairwise error probability (PEP) expressions. We then use these PEP expressions to calculate union bounds on the performance of space-time trellis codes. A MATLAB based approach is proposed and implemented to evaluate and compare performance of 4-psk with different transmitting and receiving antennas. The performance of STTC codes is evaluated by giving the performance as a function of SNR against frame error rate (FER).

Keywords: Space-time trellis coding; pairwise error probability; diversity; multiple transmit antenna; frame-error rate; outage capacity
