Aperiodic Switched Array for Line-of-Sight MIMO Backhauling
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2018

A switchable aperiodic array solution is proposed to increase the minimum channel capacity of a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) backhauling system over an extended line-of-sight communication range. The objective is to propose a low-complexity design solution that is cost-effective in regard to the manufacturing, installation, and its design process. It is shown that by adding only one switch and one auxiliary antenna per base station, a 4 × 4 MIMO system can be realized that is capable of minimizing the capacity loss that both regular and aperiodic arrays suffer from as a function of the link distance.
