Abstract

Both antenna selection and spatial modulation allow for low-complexity MIMO
transmitters when the number of RF chains is much lower than the number of
transmit antennas. In this manuscript, we present a quantitative performance
comparison between these two approaches by taking into account implementational
restrictions, such as antenna switching. We consider a band-limitedMIMO system,
for which the pulse shape is designed, such that the outband emission satisfies
a desired spectral mask. The bit error rate is determined for this system,
considering antenna selection and spatial modulation. The results depict that
for any array size at the transmit and receive sides, antenna selection
outperforms spatial modulation, as long as the power efficiency is smaller than
a certain threshold level. By passing this threshold, spatial modulation starts
to perform superior. Our investigations show that the threshold takes smaller
values, as the number of receive antennas grows large. This indicates that
spatial modulation is an effective technique for uplink transmission in massive
MIMO systems.
