Full-diversity transmission for space-time block codes (STBCs) with multiple transmit antennas can be achieved by using coordinate interleaved orthogonal designs (CIODs). To effectively evaluate the performance of CIODs, we derive union upper and lower bounds on the symbol-error rate (SER) and a corresponding asymptotic diversity order of symmetric structured CIOD, in particular, with two transmit antennas over quasi-static spatially uncorrelated/correlated frequency-nonselective Rayleigh fading channels. Some numerical results are provided to verify our analysis.
