Space-frequency coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is capable of realizing both spatial and frequency-diversity gains in multipath multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) fading channels. This naturally leads to the question of variable allocation of the channel's degrees of freedom to multiplexing and diversity transmission modes. In this paper, we provide a systematic method for the design of space-frequency codes with variable multiplexing-diversity tradeoffs. Simulation results illustrate the performance of the proposed codes.
