Recent developments in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and single-carrier frequency-domain equalization (SCFDE) have sparked debate about the superiority of one method over the other. In this paper, we further this debate by comparing the theoretical performance of OFDM and SCFDE when each is implemented in one of two different multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) architectures: spatial multiplexing and space-time block codes. This study focuses on the use of MIMO-OFDM and MIMO-SCFDE in wireless local area network (WLAN) applications. Performance is given in terms of the packet error rate (PER) and the throughput of the systems
