Parallel receiver channel sounder for spatial and MIMO characterisation of the mobile radio channel.

Salous, S. and Filippidis, P. and Lewenz, R. and Hawkins, I. and Razavi-Ghods, N. and Abdallah, M. (2005) 'Parallel receiver channel sounder for spatial and MIMO characterisation of the mobile radio channel.', IEE proceedings : communications., 152 (6). pp. 912-918.


The paper briefly compares the architecture of commonly used channel sounders for single input multiple output (SIMO) and multiple input multiple output (MIMO) applications. The architecture of a novel dual UMTS band parallel receiver sounder developed for the purposes of such studies is outlined. The performance of the sounder from back-to-back measurements and calibration considerations are discussed. Outdoor SIMO measurements and indoor/outdoor MIMO measurements obtained with different antenna arrays demonstrate its capability.
