Keywords: Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) | Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) | Phase Shift Keying (PSK) | Quadrature Amplitude modulation (QAM) | Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) Bit Error Rate (BER) | Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) | Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA).

A detailed analysis of the performance of 4×4Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna system hasbeen carried out using Orthogonal Frequency DivisionMultiplexing (OFDM) techniques. The transmissioncharacteristics are determined for BPSK and 16-QAM digitalmodulation. Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) has beenused for the channel. On the receiver side, Markov Chain MonteCarlo (MCMC) receiver techniques have been employed forcomputing the BER performance. The simulation results showthat, for BER of ~10-4, the SNR achieved are significantlyhigher. The results indicate for BPSK modulation the SNR ~ 9dB, and for 16-QAM modulation the SNR ~13 dB. The MIMOOFDMmultiplexing scheme show a overall improvement of ~4.0 dB for BER values of 10-4 between BPSK and 16-QAMmodulation. A comparison of the performance of presentMIMO-OFDM multiplexing system with MIMO-CDMA systemand common MCMC receiver indicates that, the MIMO-OFDMMultiplexing exhibits a better BER performance for 16-QAMdigital modulation. The simulations results are presented anddiscussed in the paper.
