Multiple antenna communication has become one of the major focuses in wireless communication research. MIMO Technology is used to enhance the system capacity. The effect of Fading and Interference can be combated to increase the capacity of a link. MIMO system uses multiple transmit and multiple receive antennas which exploit the multipath propagation in rich scattering environment. The matrix channel plays a pivotal role in the throughput of a MIMO link since the modulation, data rate, power allocation and antenna weights are dependent on the channel gain.
