This study presents an orthogonal design of space-time block code (STBC) that is single symbol decodable and enables full diversity and full rate transmission in a quasi-static channel environment. In the proposed scheme, full diversity is achieved by use of constellation rotation and co-ordination interpolation as is the case for the co-ordinate interleaved orthogonal design, whereas the transmission matrix of the proposed code consists of orthogonal columns with all non-zero elements, alleviating the concern about high peak-to-average power ratio. In particular, the proposed code offers lower complexity of channel estimation, and exhibits lower symbol error rate than the conventional quasi-orthogonal STBC when an maximum-likelihood decision-directed channel estimator is assumed. The advantages of the proposed code over the conventional codes are demonstrated through computer simulations. In addition, the selection of the angle of rotation for the proposed design is also presented, regarding the impact of channel estimation error.
