Optimizing Antenna Configuration for MIMO Systems with Imperfect Channel Estimation

Zhou, Xiangyun (Sean); Sadeghi, Parastoo; Lamahewa, Tharaka; Durrani, Salman


We study the optimal antenna configuration (i.e. number of transmit and receive antennas) for multiple-input multiple-output systems in pilot-symbol-assisted modulation schemes with imperfect channel estimation. We assume block flat-fading channels and focus on a practical range of high signal-to-noise ratio. An ergodic capacity lower bound is used as the objective function to be maximized. We analytically study the capacity gain from adding extra antennas to the transmitter or to the receiver...[Show more]
