Abstract

In this letter, we study space-time (ST) block coding for single carrier zero-padded (ZP) block transmissions through finite impulse response (FIR) multipath fading channels of order L. We prove that maximum diversity of order 2(L + 1) is achieved with two transmit and one receive antennae. Simulations demonstrate that joint exploitation of multi-antenna diversity and multipath diversity leads to significantly enhanced performance.
