MIMO is the technology that is advancing the wireless industry from 3G to 4G systems, and this book is your essential guide to this major development in wireless communications. It takes you step-by-step from the basics of MIMO through various coding techniques, to topics such as multiplexing and packet transmission. Practical examples are emphasized and mathematics is kept to a minimum, so you can quickly and thoroughly understand the essentials of MIMO. The book takes a systems view of MIMO technology that helps you analyze the benefits and drawbacks of any MIMO system. You find detailed coverage of a hot new topic not covered in any other book - direct interfacing of a CDMA system with an OFDM system. This hardware approach extends the capabilities of current CDMA systems by exploiting the high-throughput capabilities of OFDM. Coupled with MIMO, this approach delivers a 4G solution that meets the ever-increasing need for higher throughput wireless communication. Space Time Codes and MIMO Systems is the only resource that offers you the practical knowledge needed to work with this powerful combination of cutting-edge wireless technology.
