Abstract: In the case of a frequency flat multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system, QR decomposition can be applied to reduce the MIMO channel equalization problem to a set of decision feedback based single channel equalization problems. Using a novel technique for polynomial matrix QR decomposition (PMQRD) based on Givens rotations, we extend this work to frequency selective MIMO systems. A transmitter design based on Diagonal Bell Laboratories Layered Space Time (D-BLAST) encoding has been implemented. Turbo equalization is utilized at the receiver to overcome the multipath delay spread and to facilitate multi-stream data feedback. The effect of channel estimation error on system performance has also been considered to demonstrate the robustness of the proposed PMQRD scheme. Average bit error rate simulations show a considerable improvement over a benchmark orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technique. The proposed scheme thereby has potential applicability in MIMO communication applications, particularly for TDMA systems with frequency selective channels.
