In this paper we derive a new upper bound for the pairwise error probability of space-time codes in a quasi-static Rayleigh fading channel, considering antenna configuration at the transmitter side. The design criterion for existing space-time trellis codes is based on the rank and the determinant of the distance matrix between two code words. In particular, the diversity advantage of the space-time code is associated to the rank of the distance matrix. We show that when the transmit antenna...[Show more]
