We present a new, computationally efficient simulator for time-varying multi-path (fast fading) vector channels that can be used to evaluate the performance of antenna array wireless receivers at the base station. The development of the simulator is based on the emulation of the spatio-temporal correlation properties of the vector channel. The channel is modeled as a single-input multi-output finite impulse response (FIR) system with time-varying coefficients which are obtained via the application of a space-time correlation shaping transformation on some independent random sequences. The various parts of the new simulator are detailed and channel simulation realizations are presented and commented on
