In this paper, we study the performance of the turbo equalization schemes for systems with space-time block code (STBC) using the extrinsic information transfer (EXIT) chart, which is shown to be very useful for analyzing the convergence behavior of turbo equalizers, predicting the expected BER performance of the STBC coded systems, determining the SNR threshold for a target BER, as well as facilitating the proper choice of equalizers and channel codes for specific channel conditions.
