While most literature on MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) multiantenna communications and space-time coding has considered optimal decoding, or bounded-distance approximations thereof, the current standardization trend in wireless local area network (WLAN) systems such as IEEE 802.11n, that will use MIMO as an integral component of their physical layer, focuses on simpler schemes, where a linear space-time equalizer is used to separate the signals from the M transmit antennas, thus… CONTINUE READING
