Abstract: The rapid growth of wireless communication has created a strong demand for high data rates and antenna miniaturization. Multi input multi output systems play a very important role towards this aspect. It is possible to achieve high data rates, enhanced bandwidth and increased capacity using MIMO system. Use of diversity in MIMO systems is effective in reducing multipath fading. The crucial problem in design of MIMO systems is selecting the antenna as performance enhancement depends on the antenna used. In MIMO system as multiple antennas are used at the transmitter and receiver side, studying the properties of various antenna array configurations is required. In this paper a review concerning the properties and advantages of Microstrip patch antenna and its use for design of MIMO system is discussed.
Keywords: MIMO, microstrip patch antenna, wireless communication.
