So far, the assumption of no channel knowledge at the transmitter has generally been inherent in the design of space-time codes. This paper, on the other hand, assumes that quantized channel information obtained from a feedback link is available at the transmitter and investigates how such channel information can be incorporated into the design of unstructured space-time block codes. Efficient codes are found by means of a gradient search over a continuous alphabet. Simulation results for an uncorrelated Rayleigh fading scenario using two and four transmit antennas and one receive antenna show the benefits of the code designs.
