Smart Antennas Implementation for MIMO

Suraya Mubeen, A.M. Prasad, A.Jhansi Rani


MIMO systems place the same requirements on the RF link as do the receive diversity systems that are in place for current cellular networks, that is, there must be de-correlation between the channels received at the antenna. This de-correlation is provided by space diversity when achieved by the separation of the antennas, or by the use of polarization diversity when implemented by the use of orthogonal antenna elements. However, for dual-pole antennas, cross-polar discrimination and port-to-port isolations can affect the diversity or MIMO performance of the system by introducing correlation between the channels. MIMO systems employing smart antennas are a promising candidate for future mobile communications due to their tremendous spectral efficiency. RF engineers have to find new antenna solutions for MIMO applications, especially the integration of MIMO antennas into small handsets is a challenging task. Smart antenna systems may revolutionize future communications systems. So far, only the spectrum, the time and the code domain are exploited for communications systems. The resources spectrum and code are very limited. Smart antennas exploit the spatial domain, which has been almost completely unused so far. For multiplex transmission within one communications link, i.e. a parallel transmission of several data streams at the same time and frequency only separated by the spatial domain, multiple transmit and multiple receive antennas (multiple input multiple output - MIMO) are required. MIMO systems promise to reach very large data rates and therewith high spectral efficiencies. The proposed research work states smart antennas for mimo’s and related for wireless systems.
