Performance Analysis of MIMO System with Single RF Link Based on Switched Parasitic Antenna
AbstractThis paper introduces the principle and key technology of single radio frequency (RF) link Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) system based on a switched parasitic antenna (SPA). The software SystemVue is adopted for signal processing and system-level simulation with merit of strong operability and high efficiency, which provides tools for the single RF link MIMO system research. A single RF link of a 2 × 2 MIMO system based on the switch parasitic antenna is proposed in this paper. The binary codes are modulated to the baseband Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK) signals and transmitted with a 2.4 GHz carrier frequency. The receiver based on the super-heterodyne prototype adopts the channel equalization algorithm for restoring symbols, and it can effectively reduce the system error rate. The simulation results show that the MIMO system built on the platform can achieve equivalent performance with traditional MIMO system, which validates the effectiveness of the proposed scheme. The switched parasitic antenna and equalization algorithm provide new research ideas for single RF link MIMO system and have theoretical significance for further research. View Full-Text
