As a diversity technique, transmit antenna diversity (TAD) recently has been considered for third-generation (3G) code-division multiple-access systems. There are two different types of TAD techniques: closed loop and open loop. In this correspondence, the performance of the closed-loop TAD system equipped with multiple transmit and receive antennas is analyzed using bounds of the pairwise error probability (PEP) under a flat fading channel environment. In addition, the cutoff rate from the Chernoff bound has been considered to understand the overall performance, which may include channel coding.
