Minimum BER diagonal precoder for MIMO digital transmissions


We propose a Minimum Bit Error Rate (MBER) diagonal Precoder for Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO)transmission systems. This work is based on previous results obtained by Sampath et al.[1] in which the global transmission system (precoder and equalizer) is optimized with the Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) criterion. This process leads to an interesting diagonality property which decouples the MIMO channel into parallel and independent data streams and allows to perform an easy ML detection. This system is then optimized using a new diagonal precoder that minimizes the BER. Our work is motivated by the fact that, from a practical point of view, people are likely to prefer a system that minimizes the BER rather than the Mean Square Error. The performance improvement is illustrated via Monte Carlo simulations using a Quadratic Amplitude Modulation (QAM).
