Abstract

Polar codes, proposed by Erdal Arikan, have attracted a lot of interest in the field of channel coding for their capacity-achieving trait as well as their low encoding and decoding complexity in order O (NlogN) under successive cancellation (SC) decoder. However, there remains one significant drawback, that is, the error correction performance of short and moderate length polar codes is unsatisfactory, especially when compared with low-density parity check (LDPC) codes and turbo codes. In this paper, we propose a concatenation scheme performance, which employs a short polar encoder following to Spatial Time Block Codes (STBC), and we develop an efficient detector for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antennas, which adaptively combines Minimum Mean Square Error Successive Interference Canceller together (MMSE-SIC). We also compared to Maximum Likelihood in the literature and finally present a simulation results in binary input Additive White Gaussian Noise (BI-AWGN) with binary phase shift keying (BPSK) modulation, and we observe that, our proposed concatenation scheme significantly outperforms the Maximum Likelihood performance in the high Signal-to-Noise-Ratio (SNR).
