Abstract

We address the problem of precoding and equalisation of broadband MIMO systems. A new non-block based methods is based on a broadband singular value decomposition, which can decouple a broadband MIMO channel into independent dispersive SISO subchannels. We thereafter apply Tomlinson-Harashima precoding to mitigate the dispersiveness of these SISO subchannels. We present arguments why this is a suitable approach compared to existing methods, underlined by some simulation results.
