Abstract

In this study, linear scheme at the transmitter is proposed as a blind pre-coder to improve the performance and enhance the channel capacity of MIMO systems with certain configurations for transmitting and receiving antennas over fading channels. This is accomplished by generating a specific linear pre-coder matrix without having any prior information about the Channel State (CS) matrix. Simulation results have demonstrated the effectiveness of this linear pre-coder at the transmitter to enhance the MIMO channel capacity for all types of correlations.
