Outline of lecture
The lecture focuses on Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) transmission systems for wireless broadband communications. Basic principles, channel capacity, propagation model, processing schemes, and system structure for MIMO communications are introduced. Fundamentals of wireless communication and array signal processing are also lectured for the basis of MIMO communication system. Furthermore, future perspective of MIMO system in wireless LAN and cellular standards are also given.
Purpose of lecture
The objective of this course is to provide various aspects of MIMO communication systems for wireless broadband networks. The course supports information theory, signal processing, transceiver system, and access schemes for MIMO communication systems. Basics on wireless communication and array signal processing are provided ahead for better understanding of MIMO system. Future perspective on wireless LAN and mobile phone with MIMO schemes is also provided.
