A multiple input-multiple output (MIMO) development platform, which will aid the development process and optimization of MIMO equipment, is described. The development platform comprises a transmitter, a channel emulator and a receiver unit. The channel emulator uses a geometry based stochastic channel model (GSCM) based on the COST 259 recommendations . The hardware consists of a scalable architecture of up to ten signal processing boards, which allow for unlimited and reproducible realtime simulation of MIMO systems. The development platform also features interfaces for digital baseband, analogue baseband, intermediate frequency (IF) and radio frequency (RF) and supports multiple radio systems as well as multiple frequency bands by altering single software modules. A mature feature is the support of rapid prototyping and hardware in the loop. So, designing and validating algorithms can be performed efficiently, resulting in shorter development cycles and lower costs. The power of the development platform is demonstrated by an implementation of a smart antenna receiver for the GSM mobile standard and the corresponding uncoded bit error rates.
