Abstract

Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) are the two assuring technologies that offers high data rate as required for the 4G wireless systems. Conventionally OFDM is Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) based system. It uses IFFT (Inverse FFT) blocks in the transmitter and FFT blocks in the receiver. OFDM combined with MIMO gives increased throughput and better system performance and hence FFT based MIMO OFDM systems are widely used in 4G wireless schemes. Recent researches shows that replacing the FFT with Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) the system performance can be further improved. This leads to a new scenario DWT based MIMO OFDM system. In this study one such system is simulated and the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance of the system is analysed for the different types of wavelets under different channel environments.
