Abstract: MIMO–STBC–OFDM systems mitigate inter symbol interference and frequency-selective fading caused by multi-path propagation in modern high-data-rate wireless communication. Error correction codes use redundancy to correct errors that still occur. No systematic analysis of their performance using a common link configuration is found in the literature. We fill this gap in this simulation study using a common MIMO–STBC–OFDM communication link, transferring data at a symbol rate of 100 Mbps. We find that (a) for all code rates, low-density parity-check code performs best with BPSK and to an extent with QPSK and (b) ½-rate convolutional code works well for all symbol mapping schemes.
