On MIMO capacity of a dual multiband antenna prototype with user interactions
This paper presents an evaluation of single input single output (SISO), single input multiple output (SIMO) and multiple input multiple output (MIMO) channel capacities for a dual antenna prototype in proximity of a user. The dual antenna prototype mimics today’s small mobile phone design in size and in comprising internal, compact, multi-band antennas. Four different user cases are evaluated by measuring the antenna radiation performance for each of the different interactions between a phantom user and the antenna. Measurements of a single antenna prototype with user are also performed for comparisons between the SISO case and the SIMO/MIMO cases. Depending on the user interaction case, the MIMO capacity of the prototype is between 40-90% at 850 MHz and 60-80% at 2100 MHz higher than the SISO performance of the single antenna prototype or the best antenna on the dual antenna prototype.
