ABSTRACT An antenna selection scheme for multi-input multi-output (MIMO) ultra-wide band (UWB) communication system with time reversal (TR) is investigated in this paper. The system exploits spatial multiplexing (SM) scheme to achieve high data rate. In order to cope with long delay spread of the UWB channel, time reversal technique is adopted. TR can mitigate not only the interference intersymbol (ISI) but also multi stream interference (MSI) caused by transmitting several data streams simultaneously. Antenna selection algorithm allows to reduce the number of transmit antenna by using the channel state information (CSI), which is already available for time reversal. Simulation results show that the algorithm can considerably improve the BER performance of the system when the number of diversity branch is not so large.

    ABSTRACT: A low-complexity detector for large time-hopping MIMO-UWB system is proposed in this paper. The core idea in this detector is the likelihood ascend search method which can support large number of transmit and receive antennas (on the order of tens to hundreds). Simulation results show that our detector has much lower bit error rate than the conventional MMSE detectors meanwhile the average complexity per bit increases only linearly in the number of the product of transmit and receive antennas.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we investigate the impact of the transmit spatial correlation on the performance of the spatial multiplexing Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Multi-User (MU) Ultra-WideBand (UWB) system in which a pre-equalizer and a Time Reversal (TR) pre-filter are deployed at the transmitter. The combination of the pre-equalizer and the pre-filter is to mitigate the Multiple-Stream Interference (MSI) and Multiple-User Interference (MUI) caused by transmitting several independent data streams to different users simultaneously and the Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI) while the receivers are kept simple. In order to reduce the complexity of the transmitter, the selective-TR pre-filter is used.

    ABSTRACT: Time Reversal (TR) technique is an attractive solution for a scenario where the transmission system employs low complexity receivers with multiple antennas at both transmitter and receiver sides. The TR technique can be combined with a high data rate MIMO-UWB system as TR-MIMO-UWB system. In spite of TR's good performance in MIMO-UWB systems, it suffers from performance degradation in an imperfect Channel State Information (CSI) case. In this paper, at first a robust TR pre-filter is designed together with a MMSE equalizer in TR-MIMO-UWB system where is robust against channel imperfection conditions. We show that the robust pre-filter optimization technique, considerably improves the BER performance of TR-MIMO-UWB system in imperfect CSI, where temporal focusing of the TR technique is kept, especially for high SNR values. Then, in order to improve the system performance more than ever, a power loading scheme is developed by minimizing the average symbol error rate in an imperfect CSI. Numerical and simulation results are presented to confirm the performance advantage attained by the proposed robust optimization and power loading in an imperfect CSI scenario. Keywords—MMSE equalizer, Time Reversal (TR) technique, MIMO channel, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) system.
