Transmit antenna diversity (TAD) for the downlink channel has been investigated to improve the performance of wireless communications using multiple transmit antennas. We present a performance analysis for TAD with/without channel information. For performance analysis, we use the pairwise error probability and cutoff rate. For the closed-loop TAD in frequency-division duplex (FDD) mode, the downlink channel information should be transmitted to the base station from the mobile station. The feedback channel information may be imperfect because of the feedback delay, quantization error, and feedback error. The impact of imperfect channel information has been considered to analyze the performance of the TAD. We also present a performance analysis for a TAD technique that does not use the channel information, called space-time transmit diversity (STTD). Looking at the cutoff rates for the TAD techniques, the trellis-coded modulation (TCM) has been considered for better performance. Simulation results are shown to see the impact of the TCM on TAD systems
