It is known that in a bit-interleaved coded-modulation with iterative decoding (BICM-ID), signal constellation and mapping strongly influence the system's error performance. This letter presents good mappings of various 8-ary constellations for BICM-ID systems operating over a frequency non-selective block Rayleigh fading channel. Simulation results for the error performance of different constellations/mappings are also provided and discussed.
