Performance bounds of MIMO receivers in the presence of radio frequency interference
—Multi-input multi-output (MIMO) receivers have generally been designed and their communication performance analyzed under the assumption of additive Gaussian noise. Wireless transceivers, however, may also be affected by radio frequency interference (RFI) that is well modeled using nonGaussian impulsive statistics. In this paper, we derive bounds on the communication performance for a two transmit, two receive antenna MIMO system in the presence of RFI. Our contributions include derivation of (1) channel capacity in the presence of RFI, (2) probability of symbol error for uncoded transmissions, and (3) Chernoff bound on the pairwise error probability and cutoff rate as a measure of the throughput performance for coded transmissions. Comparison with the communication performance bounds for receivers designed assuming additive Gaussian noise demonstrates degradation in communication performance in the presence of RFI.
