Space-time codes provide both diversity and coding gain when using multiple transmit antennas to increase spectral efficiency over wireless communications systems. Space-time block codes have already been included in the standardization process of UMTS in conjunction with conventional channel codes (convolutional and turbo codes). We discuss different encoding and decoding strategies when transmit diversity is combined with conventional channel codes, and present simulations results for the TDD
