Abstract— This paper compares the performance of a Turbo coded OFDM wireless link for SISO, SIMO, MISO and MIMO system with uncoded OFDM wireless link for SISO, SIMO, MISO and MIMO system in the in the presence of rayleigh fading. Turbo encoder encodes the input information bits and sends to QPSK or 16 QAM or 64 QAM modulator. Modulated symbols are mapped by STBC. Outputs of STBC are split into n streams which are further modulated by OFDM and simultaneously transmitted using n transmit antennas. It is observed that the turbo coded SISO-OFDM system provides 21 dB coding gain at 10-4, turbo coded SIMO-OFDM system provides 20 and 13 db coding gain for 2 and 4 receive antennas respectively at a BER of 10-6 , turbo coded MISO-OFDM system provides 17 and 12 dB coding gain for 2 and 4 transmit antennas respectively at a BER of 10-6 and turbo coded MIMO¬OFDM system provides 11 to 13 dB coding gain for different combination of transmit and receive antennas at BER 10-6 compare to uncoded SISO-OFDM, SIMO-OFDM, MISO-OFDM and MIMO-OFDM system.
