A Comprehensive Review on Channel Estimation Techniques in MIMO-OFDM


  • Ritu Babulkar M.Tech Scholar Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering NITTTR, Bhopal




In wireless communication, more than one signals are transmitted in the channel by using the concept of Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) which efficiently handles the inter symbol interference and utilizes the frequency and available bandwidth efficiently. Whereas for OFDM transmission technique is integrated with MIMO channel which contains multiple transmitter and receiver antenna at both ends. By using MIMO-OFDM system, different signals can be transmitted at the same time by utilizing same frequency and get separated in the space.  As the transmitting antenna transmit signal in the noisy channel so, it is required to estimate the noise in the channel. The channel estimation technique in noisy channel helps in analyzing the effect of noise on the transmitted data. In this paper, a brief review is presented for channel estimation techniques for MIMO-OFDM.
