A computer simulator package for MIMO systems is presented. This simulator is highly configurable, easily extensible, and can generate exhaustive performance and complexity measurements. Examples of use and capabilities are shown. The simulator's source code has been released to the research community under an open-source license. Computer simulation is an essential tool when studying the performance and complexity of the different receivers that have been proposed for use in Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO) telecommunication systems. Simulation also has an important role to play in architecture exploration, indicating which portions of the algorithms need to be optimized, and where the bottlenecks are found.
