Recently, space-time block codes (STBCs) obtained from coordinate interleaved orthogonal designs (CIODs) have attracted considerable attention, due to the advantages of full-diversity transmission and single-symbol decodability. In this letter, we design a novel STBC from CIOD for two transmit antennas. The proposed code guarantees full-diversity and full-rate along with low peak-to-minimum power ratio (PMPR). Furthermore, in contrast to the existing Alamouti code, the performance of the proposed code is not degraded even in severely time-selective fading channels.
