This paper investigates the ergodic capacity of Ricean-fading multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) channels with rank-1 mean matrices under the assumption that the channel is unknown at the transmitter and perfectly known at the receiver. After introducing the system model and the concept of ergodic capacity of MIMO channels, we derive the explicit expressions for the expected values of the determinant and log-determinant of complex noncentral Wishart matrices. Subsequently, we obtain new upper and lower bounds on the ergodic capacity of rank-1 Ricean-fading MIMO channels at any signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). We show that our bounds are tighter than previously reported analytical bounds, and discuss the impact of spatial fading correlation and Ricean K-factor with the help of these bounds. Furthermore, we extend the analysis of ergodic capacity to frequency selective spatially correlated Ricean-fading MIMO channels. We demonstrate that the calculation of ergodic capacity of frequency selective fading MIMO channels can be converted to the calculation of the one of equivalent frequency flat-fading MIMO channels. Finally, we present numerical results that confirm the theoretical analysis
