Abstract

It is well known that multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) wireless channels, in which multi-element antenna arrays are used at both ends of the link, can in principle offer spectral efficiencies an order of magnitude or more above those available through conventional single antenna systems [1]. However, the performance of a practical MIMO system relies strongly upon the channel characteristics. In this paper, the antenna array is considered as part of the observed channel and an experimental evaluation is reported in which the theoretic information capacity is derived for 3 different antenna element designs for a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) application
