The maximal rate of a nonsquare complex orthogonal design for n transmit antennas is [1/2]+[1/(n)] if n is even and [1/2]+[1/(n+1)] if n is odd and the codes have been constructed for all n by Liang (2003) and Lu (2005) to achieve this rate. A lower bound on the decoding delay of maximal-rate complex orthogonal designs has been obtained by Adams (2007) and it is observed that Liang's construction achieves the bound on delay for n equal to 1 and 3 modulo 4 while Lu et al.'s construction achieves the bound for n=0 , 1, 3 mod 4. For n=2 mod 4, Adams (2010) have shown that the minimal decoding delay is twice the lower bound, in which case, both Liang's and Lu et al.'s construction achieve the minimum decoding delay. For large value of n , it is observed that the rate is close to half and the decoding delay is very large. A class of rate-[1/2] codes with low decoding delay for all n has been constructed by Tarokh (1999). In this paper, another class of rate-[1/2] codes is constructed for all n in which case the decoding delay is half the decoding delay of the rate-[1/2] codes given by Tarokh This is achieved by giving first a general construction of square real orthogonal designs which includes as special cases the well-known constructions of Adams, Lax, and Phillips and the construction of Geramita and Pullman, and then making use of it to obtain the desired rate-[1/2] codes. For the case of nine transmit antennas, the proposed rate-[1/2] code is shown to be of minimal delay. The proposed construction results in designs with zero entries which may have high peak-to-average power ratio and it is shown that by appropriate postmultiplication, a design with no zero entry can be obtained with no change in the code parameters.
