In recent years, due to the increasing demand of the data transmission rate, a lot of research based on Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) system is established. MIMO systems can increase the system capacity and improve transmission reliability. However, the multiple RF chains associated with multiple antennas are costly in terms of size, power and hardware. Antenna selection techniques have been applied in MIMO system design to reduce the system complexity and cost. In this paper, we

The simulation results illustrate that; the new antenna selection scheme can obtain performance close to the optimum selection with low computational complexity.
