Abstract

This paper presents implementation and analysis of reconfigurable ultra-wideband (UWB) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna system in indoor and outdoor communication scenarios. The proposed compact and reconfigurable UWB antenna system has operating frequency range from 440 MHz-5 GHz. In indoor communication, based on the TGn-B propagation model, the MIMO system can achieve a maximum channel capacity of 26.97 bps/Hz. In outdoor communication, based on the Spatial Channel Model (SCM)-Suburban-Macro non-line of sight (NLOS), the MIMO system achieves a maximum channel capacity of 6.25 bps/Hz. It is demonstrated that orthogonal orientation of the reconfigurable UWB antenna in MIMO exhibits improved polarization diversity.
