In this paper, BER (Bit Error Rate) performance in 22 MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) spatial multiplexing systems under Rician fading channels is evaluated. We examine BER performances employing inverse channel detection (ICD) under Rician fading channels, adding the phase of the direct path and Rician factor as a parameter. The results clearly indicate that the phase of the direct path and Rician factor have a great influence on BER performances employing ICD under Rician fading channels.
