RE: [10GBASE-T] question about the complexity reduction of MIMO
I believe the complexity of a practical realization is important to the
group as we look at the feasibility of 10 gigabits/second over Cat-5 and
the role that different line codes play.
I am curious as to what complexity measure you are using when discussing
the 16x reduction using MIMO. Is it power dissipation for a given
technology? Multiplies per second? Gate count?
