Ergodic Capacity of a SISO system over a Rayleigh Fading channel – Simulation in Matlab

In the previous post, derivation of SISO fading channel capacity was discussed. For a flat fading channel (model shown below), with the perfect knowledge of the channel at the receiver, the capacity of a SISO link was derived as $$C = log_2 (1 + \gamma)=log_2 \left ( 1 +...

Capacity of a SISO system over a fading channel

As reiterated in the previous posts, a MIMO system is used to increase the capacity dramatically and also to improve the quality of a communication link. Increased capacity is obtained by spatial multiplexing and increased quality is obtained by diversity techniques (Space time coding). Capacity equations of a MIMO...

Channel Capacity

How much data will a Channel carry in one second or what is the data rate supported by the channel ??? Lets discover the answer for this question in detail … Shannon’s Theorem : Any discussion about the design of a communication system will be incomplete without mentioning Shannon’s...
