In the current 3G & 4G wireless communication systems, MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology plays a key role for attaining improved data rates. These technologies require larger data rates with high speed, quality of transmission and accuracy. The technique of improving the channel capacity with increasing the no. of antennas at the transmitter and receiver was first predicted by Foschini. This technique has given an ample opportunity for the researchers and academicians to explore the ways of enhancing the data rates. The primary research emphasizes data encoding, DSP algorithms, channel characteristics, receiver design and antenna design.
