MIMO Receiver Design: Detection and Channel Estimation
The previous chapter has described a number of space-time coding techniques, as well as some examples of MIMO receiver algorithms (see Section 6.5.2). In this chapter,
• we present a review of MIMO receiver architectures for linear uncoded STBCs, including suboptimal and near-optimal techniques,
• we give an overview of iterative detection in coded transmission schemes,
• we address the problem of MIMO channel estimation via a few introductory examples.
7.1 Reminder: System Model
As detailed in Chapter 6, a general MIMO transmission scheme consists of a sequence of two steps where channel encoding, time interleaving and symbol mapping are performed first while space-time coding is ...
