We look closely at the code design criteria for fading channels (maximizing effective length and product distance). Based on these results, trellis coded modulation using asymmetric PSK signal sets for fading channels are considered. Simulation results are presented to show that improved performance may be obtained.
For the AWGN channel when using codes over M-ary signal constellations the performance depends on the square of their minimum Euclidean distance. We obtain a lower achievable asymptotic bound for Euclidean space codes over uniform signal sets (a signal set in which the distance profile looking from any signal point is the same). We obtain bounds for a number of 2, 3 and 4 dimensional signal sets and compare them based on the bound.
