Serially Concatenated RS Codes with ST Turbo Codes Over Ring
In this paper, we investigate serially concatenated Reed-Solomon codes (RS) with the space-time turbo codes over ring ZM. The encoded QPSK signals are transmitted through the quasi-static and fast-fading multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) channel. In the receiver, we use the iterative soft input soft output (SOVA) algorithm. Simulation results show that the system performance is similar to the performance of the previously published space-time trellis code system (STTC)  for a fast-fading channel and is advantageous for a quasi-static channel.
