Transmit beamforming can exploit the spatial diversity afforded by multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with low complexity. To apply this technique in more practical systems with the constraint of limited feedback, codebook based beamforming and vector quantization technique have been considered in various papers. On the other hand, multi-user scheduling is able to achieve another form of diversity arising from the independence of fading for different users, however, has not been fully taken into account in existing codebook based beamforming schemes. In this letter, a multi-codebook based beamforming and scheduling scheme is proposed, which exploits both spatial diversity and multi-user diversity by switching the codebook for different resource blocks. Meanwhile, the multi-codebook design issue is addressed, the corresponding theoretical analysis is provided, and the performance gain of proposed scheme is simulated. Furthermore, the impacts of related parameters on the performance gain are also investigated.
