Research Profile

  • Forward Error Correction Code for Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) wireless communication system.

    A reliable wireless communication channel is amongst the most important issues in a wireless network. Due to its nature, a reliable wireless communication channel is a challenge to provide. Wireless channel diversity is an efficient technique to achieve reliable transmission. Multi-antenna exploits spatial diversity as a method that has been proved to drastically increase channel capacity while keeping bit error rates (BER) near Shannon limits.

    The aim of this research is to design or improve a FEC code algorithm for wireless communication network. This algorithm will be combine with MIMO system and be able to detect and correct the corrupted data in order to decrease the BER and increase wireless channel efficiency.
