Abstract
We present a simple closed-form expression for the BER of orthogonal space-time block codes (OSTBCs) with MMSE channel estimation, assuming PAM and QAM constellations and flat Rayleigh block fading. The BER expression is exact for a certain class of OSTBCs, and provides a very accurate approximation for other OSTBCs.
