2009 (English)In: IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, ISSN 1536-1276, E-ISSN 1558-2248, Vol. 8, no 9, 4369-4374 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Adaptive MQAM modulation is used to maximize spectral efficiency of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems while keeping bit error rate (BER) under a target level. Closed-form expressions of the average spectral efficiency, coined as discrete-rate spectral efficiency (DRSE), are derived for adaptive modulation MIMO systems using different algorithms. To further enhance the spectral efficiency, a low complexity adaptation scheme is suggested to switch across different algorithms based on the DRSE. In the current letter, we investigate the adaptation scheme that switches between Orthogonal Space-Time Block Codes (OSTBC) and spatial multiplexing with zero-forcing (ZF) detection for MIMO systems with two transmit antennas. Two types of operating environment are considered: flat Rayleigh fading channel without spatial correlation and spatially correlated Rayleigh fading channel with transmit correlation.
