For a quasi-static, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO)Rayleigh fading channel, high-rate space-time block codes(STBCs) with full-diversity have been constructed in [I] for arbitrary number of transmit antennas, by using the regular matrix representation of an associative division algebra. While the 2 x 2 as well as 4 x 4 real-orthogonal design (ROD) [2] and Alamouti code [3] were obtained as a special case of this construction, the 8 x 8 ROD could not be obtained. In this paper, starting with a non-associative division algebra (Cayley algebra or morc popularly known as octonion algebra) over an arbitrary characteristic zer field F, a method of embedding this algebra into the ring of matrices ovcr F is descrihcd, and high-rate full-rank STBCs for 8m (m, an arbitrary integer)antennas are obtained. We also give a closed form expression for the coding gain of these STBCs. This embedding when specialized to F = R and m = I, gives the 8 x 8 ROD.
