General minimum Euclidean distance-based precoder for MIMO wireless systems

Abstract : In this article, we investigate the linear precoder based on the maximization of the minimum Euclidean distance between two received data vectors. This new precoding matrix is expressed as the product of a power allocation matrix and an input-shaping matrix. The input-shaping matrix is selected as a normalized discrete Fourier transform-matrix, and the optimal power allocation depends on the channel characteristics. For each number of available datastreams, we propose a general form of the optimized precoding matrix. These forms are suitable for different transmit channels and especially for all rectangular quadrature amplitude modulation modulations. We show, in the simulation results, that the proposed precoder provides a significant improvement in terms of bit error rate performance compared to other traditional precoding strategies.
