We introduce a construction technique for generalized complex linear processing orthogonal designs, which are p x n matrices X satisfying XHX = f I, where f is a complex quadratic form, I is the identity matrix, and X has complex entries. These matrices generalize the familiar notions of orthogonal designs and generalized complex orthogonal designs. We explain the application of these matrices to space-time block coding for multiple-antenna wireless communications. In particular, we discuss the practical strengths of the space-time block codes constructed via our proposed technique
