Wireless Communication Systems are facing the challenges regarding increasing number of users, limited bandwidth and a continuous need for high data rates. One of the fundamental mechanisms to enhance channel capacity is the use of Multiple Input-Multiple Output (MIMO) systems for channel capacity enhancement. This paper presents review on the various implementation mechanisms of MIMO-Systems specially focusing on Space Time Block Coding (STBC). A brief introduction pertaining to the basics of MIMO systems have also been put forth for the ease of understanding of MIMO based systems.
