Multi-Antenna systems are expected to play very important role in future multimedia wireless communication systems. Such systems are predicted to provide tremendous improvement in spectrum utilization. In this paper we consider the capacity analysis of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems. Space-Time coding schemes are the practical signal design techniques to realize the information theoretic capacity limits of MIMO systems. Here the orthogonal space-time block codes are considered for the capacity and error probability analysis of MIMO systems as a case study. The numerical and simulation results obtained using MATLAB are presented for the Multi-antenna system channel capacity and bit-error probability in Rayleigh fading channels.
