MIMO Maximum Likelihood Detector

What are the relevant MIMO modes and technology and how do you choose the proper MLD receiver.


MIMO (Multiple Input and Multiple Output) is one of the leading approaches for improving data rates and/or SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio). By using multiple receive and transmit antennas, MIMO can exploit the diversity of the wireless channel. This is then used to increase the spectral efficiency of the channel and improve the data rates for any given channel bandwidth.

This white paper reviews the relevant MIMO modes and technology, describes the advantages of choosing a suboptimal MLD receiver over a Minimal Mean Square Error (MMSE) receiver and explains the complexities of the MLD implementation and how to solve them using suboptimal ML solutions.
