Abstract

This paper shows how the fundamental concepts of MIMO transmission can be illustrated using cheap audio equipment. Experiments are proposed which cover both diversity and spatial multiplexing techniques. Regarding the former, MRC receive diversity and Alamouti transmit diversity are examined. For the latter, V-BLAST and SVD-based methods are demonstrated, and their functioning is compared. The experiments allow the students to observe the most important features of MIMO, and can be helpful for wireless communication courses.
