 Abstract
Performance of the Alamouti algorithm based M-ary OSTBC(Orthogonal Space Time Block Coded) MIMO(Multi Input Multi Output) system has been simulated varying two main parameters - the number of constellation(M), and the number of receiving antennas(N). Computer simulation has also been carried out using Matlab software for performance comparison between MIMO and MRC(Maximal Ratio Combining) diversity antenna system to evaluate the degree of enhancement achieved through the use of Alamouti MIMO. Under 10 dB EbNo QPSK scenario, MIMO brought 4.2 dB BER improvement over single antenna system and MIMO resulted in 7.4 dB BER improvement over MRC.
