Abstract:

This thesis investigates the simulation performance of multiple-input multiple-output MIMO systems utilizing Alamouti-based space-time block coding STBC technique. The MIMO communication systems using STBC technique employing both single-carrier modulation and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing OFDM are simulated in Matlab. The physical layer part of the IEEE 802.16a standard is used in constructing the simulated OFDM schemes. Stanford University Interim SUI channel models are selected for the wireless channel in the simulation process. The performance results of the simulated MIMO systems are compared to those of conventional single antenna systems.
