Abstract

An alternative way to increase the channel capacity of a single link is to use smart antennas in both transmitter and receiver. Five approaches are employed to determine the antenna weights: the inversion approach, the minimum mean squared error (MMSE) approach, the singular value decomposition (SVD)-MMSE approach, the SVD approach, and the iterative approach. Low bit error rate (BER) is obtained even with small angle separations when noise levels are low. The system also works reasonably well even with high noise levels as long as the angle separations of multipath arrivals are sufficiently large.
