The matched filter bound for space-time block coded multiple-input multiple-output systems in a frequency-selective Nakagami fading channel is derived for binary phase shift keying. Arbitrary correlation among the elements of the transmitter and the receiver antenna arrays is taken into account. Moreover, in the special case of Rayleigh fading the effect of the pulse shape is also considered. The resulting expressions allow for evaluation of the impacts of different system design parameters and the characteristics of the propagation environment on the bit-error rate performance of the system.
