Linear equalizer in MIMO radio communications systems

V. B. Manelis, I. V. Kaioukov


A linear equalizer for MIMO radio communications systems has been considered. The weight coefficients of the MIMO equalizer were obtained in accordance with the criterion of minimum mean squared error. Using the computer simulation technique and analyzing the case study of HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) channel it was shown that the application of equalizer made it possible to significantly improve the reception characteristics as compared with those of a conventional rake receiver.
