dc.description.abstractA great demand exits for higher data rates and increased reliability of future consumer based mobile communication systems while being more bandwidth and power efficient. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) in combination with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) schemes has become a promising candidate for fulfilling the demand of next generation communication systems. The sensitivity of MIMO OFDM systems to physical impairments is of great interest and particularly the Alamouti space-time block code is under investigation in this thesis. Generic and comprehensive simulation models of an OFDM communication system incorporating the spacetime block code are developed in a modular fashion and used in a performance evaluation with non-ideal component and channel behaviour.en_ZA
