Various space time code (STC) designs have been proposed to obtain full diversity at full rate in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels for uncoded systems. However, commercial wireless systems typically employ powerful channel codes such as turbo codes and low density parity check (LDPC) codes together with an STC. For these applications, an STC optimized for uncoded systems may not provide the best performance. In this paper, an STC with relatively good performance over a wide range of code rates is proposed. Simulation results show that the performance of the proposed robust STC is very close to the best performance of the SM and the Golden code in various code rates.
