Title: Exploiting Real World Channels for Increased Capacity

Speaker: Ernest Tsui and Xiaoshu Qian


Directional channel models are becoming accepted channel models for an increasing number of standards that require MIMO processing. We will cover exactly what these directional channels are, how they are modeled, and how they relate to reality. Then we will discuss the impact of the models on MIMO performance and link budgets.


Ernest Tsui is a principal engineer and wireless architect at Intel. He is a senior member of the IEEE. He has worked in software and reconfigurable radio research, digital television, antennas, WiMax, and cable modems at Intel. He earned his BS, MS, and PhD all at U.C. Berkeley.

Xiaoshu Qian has been with Intel Corporation for 11 years, where he works in communication and DSP system design. He has also taught many graduate courses in these areas in several universities, most recently in Santa Clara University. He receives Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, M.S. in Computer Science and M.S. in Mathematics, all from University of Rhode Island and B.S. in Physics from Zhejiang University in China. He has published numerous technical papers and is the main author of four U.S. patents with several pending.
