In this paper, a 4-transmit-antenna space time block coding (STBC) scheme with 1-bit differential feedback is proposed. This scheme gives full transmit diversity and spatial coding rate over time-selective fading channels by rotating the signal constellations for certain angles determined by the differential feedback information. By utilizing differential feedback, our method can provide much better channel orthogonality and track the variation of the channel more accurately and timely under time-selective fading circumstances, comparing to recent works presenting other quantized feedback schemes. Simulation results show that the 1-bit differential feedback scheme achieves near-optimum performance and outperforms existing algorithms without adding more overhead or complexity.
