Chapter 9. MIMO Channels

Concepts of multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) signaling go beyond mere antenna diversity. In a MIMO wireless link, a data stream is broken into separate signals and sent through separable multipath channels in space. Although practical considerations, such as multiple antenna integration and signal processing, make MIMO signaling a serious technical challenge, many engineers regard such techniques as the future of band-limited wireless communications. Indeed, incredible amounts of data may be squeezed into a tiny amount of signal spectrum through clever use of space.

This chapter presents a basic introduction to MIMO concepts and signal processing, emphasizing the potential gains in Shannon channel capacity through ...
