Summary

With the ever-increasing need for high speed and high quality wireless communication services that dominates our society nowadays, there has been an inevitable requirement for advanced and innovative antenna systems. The advent of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna systems has been a game changer in recent years, bringing to life capabilities that were thought to not be possible before. However, as revolutionary as these systems are, they require exponentially more sophisticated and extensive research, which can render the conventional antenna analysis tools ineffective and insufficient. Nebens' MIMObit offers an integrated platform that aspires to relieve telecommunications engineers of the burden of creating or interlinking suitable tools for their projects, thereby enabling them to focus on what really matters; that is the antenna design itself. Additionally, MIMObit aims to provide features that enhance the current methods and concepts of antenna design, and thus enable the user to study their ideas on a whole new level. In this thesis, we attempt to break down various parts of the software and explain how they can be related and analyzed in terms of the abstract signals \& systems and information theory terminology. Finally, we make some channel capacity comparisons between MIMObit and our own implementations of algorithms in the simple case of Single Input Single Output (SISO) antenna systems, in an attempt to study the extent to which the software adheres to valid theoretical communications models.
