Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO)

MIMO channels, OSTBC, sphere decoding

Communications Toolbox™ provides System objects™ and blocks for modeling generic and LTE-specific MIMO channels, and for encoding, combining, and decoding MIMO signals.

Objects

Introduction to MIMO Systems

This example shows Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems, which use multiple antennas at the transmitter and receiver ends of a wireless communication system.

Spatial Multiplexing

This example shows spatial multiplexing schemes wherein the data stream is subdivided into independent sub-streams, one for each transmit antenna employed.
