Cyclic delay diversity (CDD) is a low-complexity standard-conformable transmit diversity scheme for coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. However, it makes channel estimation more challenging due to the increased frequency-selectivity of the equivalent single-input single-output channel. In this paper, we propose a novel CDD-OFDM scheme with pilot-aided channel estimation for any number of transmit antennas. By alternating and optimizing the cyclic delay parameter over adjacent OFDM symbols, we design a simple yet efficient channel estimation scheme and illustrate its excellent performance for the DVB-T application.
