ABSTRACT In MIMO systems, spatial multiplexing is a powerful technique for increasing channel capacity by transmitting multiple data streams in the same channel simultaneously. Moreover, additional performance can be extracted in the presence of channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter. However, channel estimation error usually exists in practical systems and leads to imperfect CSI. As a result, the system performance is degraded. Fortunately power allocation can mitigate the problem effectively. In this paper, the power allocation problem is investigated in the case of imperfect CSI with accurate system model. A greedy power allocation (GPA) algorithm with adaptive modulation scheme is proposed to maximize the system data rate while satisfying each data stream's bit error rate requirement. Simulation results show that GPA can reduce the effects of imperfect CSI and obtain better performance than other traditional algorithms, e.g. waterfilling and equal power allocation algorithms.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents an overview of progress in the area of multiple input multiple output (MIMO) space-time coded wireless systems. After some background on the research leading to the discovery of the enormous potential of MIMO wireless links, we highlight the different classes of techniques and algorithms proposed which attempt to realize the various benefits of MIMO including spatial multiplexing and space-time coding schemes. These algorithms are often derived and analyzed under ideal independent fading conditions. We present the state of the art in channel modeling and measurements, leading to a better understanding of actual MIMO gains. Finally, the paper addresses current questions regarding the integration of MIMO links in practical wireless systems and standards.

    ABSTRACT: We present the optimum design of a linear transmitter for a multi-input multi-output communication system when the input data consists of two QPSK streams and the receiver performs maximum likelihood detection. The transmitter design is optimal in the sense that it minimizes the worst-case pairwise error probability. We prove that the resulting linear transmitter constructs, as a function of the two input QPSK streams, a new signal constellation. Moreover, we show that this new signal constellation is such that the minimum distance among the points of the received constellation is maximized and, indirectly, the number of neighbors at minimum distance is also maximized.

    ABSTRACT: We propose a Minimum Bit Error Rate (MBER) diagonal Precoder for Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) transmission systems. This work is based on previous results obtained by Sampath et al. (1) in which the global transmission system (precoder and equalizer) is optimized with the Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) crite- rion. This process leads to an interesting diagonality property which decouples the MIMO channel into parallel and independent data streams and allows to perform an easy ML detection. This system is then optimized using a newdiagonal precoder that minimizes the BER. Our w ork is motivated by the fact that, from a prac- tical point of view, people are likely to prefer a system that minimizes the BER rather than the Mean Square Error. The performance improvement is illustrated via Monte Carlo simulations using a Quadratic Amplitude Modulation (QAM).
