In this letter, we propose a simple groupwise space time block code (GSTBC) which can be easily applied to a large number of transmit antennas and be effectively decoded by a low complexity successive interference cancellation (SIC) based receiver. The proposed GSTBC and SIC based receiver are jointly designed and the diversity repetition in GSTBC is used to induce the dimension expansion that can be exploited by the SIC based receiver to suppress interfering signals as well as to obtain diversity gain. Our proposed scheme provides a near maximum likelihood (ML) performance while keeping a reasonably low complexity at the receiver.
