Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) wireless systems provide many advantages by using more than a single antenna. As such, it is considered in the current and future wireless standards. However, radio frequency (RF) transceiver design for MIMO wireless communications is a challenging task. This subject has been attracting research attention in both academia and industry. This chapter provides a general overview of MIMO systems and transceiver implementation.
