For a narrowband multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system the singular value decomposition has the ability to provide multiple spatial channels for data transmission. We extend this work to obtain spatial diversity techniques for frequency selective MIMO systems using a polynomial matrix decomposition known as the sequential best rotation using second order statistics (SBR2) method. This algorithm diagonalizes a MIMO frequency selective channel yielding various spatial modes for data transmission. We evaluate the diversity performance of the dominant channel provided by the SBR2 based broadband decomposition and compare it with a transmit antenna selection method (TAS) and a MIMO orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) singular value decomposition (SVD) based approach. Simulation results show SBR2 significantly outperforms the average bit error rate (BER) of TAS, making it very suitable for time division multiple access (TDMA) and code division multiple access (CDMA) systems. SBR2 and MIMO-OFDM systems are shown to have identical BER performance, confirming the efficiency of the proposed low delay spatial-temporal scheme.
