MIMO space division multiplexing in an OFDM system (MIMO-OFDM) can achive high-data-rate transmission without additional frequency spectra. Furthermore, eigenbeam-space division multiplexing (E-SDM) which is also called the singular value decomposition (SVD) algorithm can provide maximum throughput in the MIMO channel when channel state information (CSI) is available at the transmitter. When the uplink and downlink channels are not reciprocal as in a FDD system, we need to feed back the CSI from the receiver to the transmitter. However, capacity is limited because CSI feedback is needed for each subcarrier in an OFDM system. This paper proposes the feedback of the time-domain channel estimated using the minimum mean square error method. The proposed method can reduce the amount of feedback information, and reveals better bit error rate performance than the other schemes.
