Agilent and Wireless Institute plan MIMO research initiative

Agilent Technologies and the Wireless Institute at Notre Dame University are to establish a collaborative research initiative aimed at developing the next generation of multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) wireless technologies.

MIMO technologies involve multiple antenna systems and advanced signal-processing techniques.

Agilent and researchers at the Wireless Institute have established a core test facility with real-time, broadband signal generation and channel emulation for MIMO wireless systems with up to four transmitter antennas and four receiver antennas.

The facility is intended to help researchers with radio-frequency and baseband channel emulation for performance validation, as well as interference and co-existence testing.
