Abstract / truncated to 115 words (read the full abstract)

Bit-rate and quality of service demands of new wireless communication standards are pushing signal theory and algorithm implementation to their limits. One of the main strategies which are being used to achieve the demanded rates is the multiple input-multiple output (MIMO) technique, which employs multiple antennas, both at transmission and reception. This PhD dissertation concentrates on the analysis of the effects of channel estimation, specially complex due to the number of parameters to estimate, on the performance of MIMO detectors, focusing on both practical and theoretical aspects. The practical analysis has been addressed by designing and developing a real-time wireless MIMO communication platform. A whole 2 X 2 system has been implemented which has allowed ... toggle 6 keywords
