Adaptive Precoding for Switching Between Spatial Multiplexing and Diversity in MIMO OFDM With Transmit Antenna and Path Correlations

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The path and antenna correlations significantly degrade the system capacity in spatially-multiplexed Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems and increase Bit Error Rate (BER) in Orthogonal Space-Time Block Coded (OSTBC) OFDM. The authors develop adaptive dual-mode precoding to improve system performance with transmit antenna and path correlations. Both linear and non-linear Tomlinson-Harashima (TH) precoders are considered. In the proposed approach, precoding for maximizing capacity in spatially-multiplexed OFDM or precoding for minimizing error rate in OSTBC OFDM is adaptively chosen at the receiver, and only one-bit decision information per subcarrier needs to be sent back to the transmitter.
