Combined Space-Time Diversity and Interference Cancellation for MIMO Wireless Systems
MetadataShow full item record
There is increasing interest in the exploitation of multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) channels to enhance the capacity of wireless systems. In this study, we develop and evaluate a channel model, evaluate the corresponding channel capacity, and design and analyze a simple orthogonal transmit waveform for MIMO channels in mobile radio environments. We also evaluate the system performance of various interference cancellation techniques when employing multiple-receive antenna in interference-limited systems. The first part of this dissertation presents two major contributions to MIMO systems. The analytical expression for space-time MIMO channel correlation is derived for a Rayleigh fading channel. The information-theoretic channel capacity based on this correlation is also evaluated for a wide variety of mobile radio channels. The second part of this dissertation presents two major contributions to the area of orthogonal waveform design. We analyze the bit-error-rate (BER) performance of a proposed space-time orthogonal waveform for MIMO mobile radio communications. The application of the proposed space-time orthogonal waveform to a conventional cellular system is also evaluated and briefly discussed. Finally, this dissertation investigates a number of interference cancellation techniques for multiple-receive antenna systems. Both adaptive beamforming and multiuser detection are evaluated for various signal waveforms over a variety of mobile radio channels.
