  • Patent number: 8457220
    Abstract: A multi-input multi-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) transceiving system is provided, in which an MIMO-OFDM receiver feeds back ordering information, such as the order of power intensities of reception signals of a plurality of reception antennas, to an MIMO-OFDM transmitter. The MIMO-OFDM transmitter arranges subcarriers, to which data symbols have been allocated, so that the subcarriers respectively correspond to a plurality of transmission antennas, according to the fed-back information. Thus, a specific substream can be transmitted via a transmission antenna having the greatest channel gain. Consequently, the probability of properly recovering the specific substream is greatly increased.
