This paper introduces a new space-time coding scheme, namely Space-Time Complementary Coding (STCC) scheme. With the help of pair-wise complementary codes, an STCC MIMO system can achieve both spatial diversity and multiplex transmission. The scheme requires neither bandwidth expansion nor feedback information from receiver, and it offers a nearly interference-free and multipath-resist performance due to a widely open interference-free window of the pair-wise complementary codes. The analytical results reveals that it provides a uniquely high diversity-multiplex gain product for its applications in flat or frequency-selective fading channel.
