This course covers the fundamentals of Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna based wireless communication systems. MIMO is now an essential part of modern wireless communication systems, such as 3G, 4G, WLAN / Wifi, LTE, WiMax, etc. MIMO brings to the domain of wireless communications, spectral efficiency and reliability gains. With multiple antennas at the transmitter and receiver it helps design wireless communication systems that can use the additional spatial dimension over and above the well investigated time-frequency dimensions to fetch myriads of new gains. MIMO is expected to be one of the enabler of 5G communication systems. This course covers important concepts of MIMO communication such as capacity computation, error probability analysis, transmitter and receiver design, multi-user communication, etc. After completion of the course the participants will be able to apply the methods for performance analysis and design of advanced wireless communication systems.INTENDED AUDIENCE: B.Tech fourth year/M.TechPREREQUISITES: digital communicationINDUSTRY SUPPORT: Wireless Communication industry: QUALCOMM, Samsung, Broadcom, MediaTek, NXP, Marvel,Telecom Service provider: Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, Idea cellular, BSNL,TATA Communications, ISRO
