A Polynomial QR Decomposition Based Turbo Equalization Technique for Frequency Selective MIMO Channels

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In the case of a frequency flat Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) system, QR decomposition can be applied to reduce the MIMO channel equalization problem to a set of decision feedback based single channel equalization problems. Using a novel technique for Polynomial Matrix QR Decomposition (PMQRD) based on Givens rotations, the authors extend this work to frequency selective MIMO systems. A transmitter design based on Diagonal Bell Laboratories Layered Space Time (D-BLAST) encoding has been implemented. Turbo equalization is utilized at the receiver to overcome the multipath delay spread and to facilitate multi-stream data feedback.
