Executive Summary

The authors consider the impact of transmitter correlation, mutual coupling and matching networks on the design and performance of MIMO MRC systems with limited feedback. They present codebook design techniques for three measures of transmitted power and they investigate the impact of antenna matching on the performance of these codebooks. Numerical results suggest that, regardless of the power measure and matching networks, the benefits of MIMO MRC with limited feedback can be achieved with antennas spaced as close as 0.2-0.3 wavelengths apart.
