Abstract: Wireless technologies are aiming to improve data rates along with reliability using Multiple Input and Multiple Output(MIMO) systems. The major performance parameter for advanced systems is Bit Error rate (BER). Researchers are working for minimizing the BER for data communication. This paper presents the BER performance of turbo coded Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) system in Nakagami channel. MIMO system is realized using Space Time Block Codes. System performance is analyzed for M-ary Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) in Nakagami channel. System is implemented using MATLAB code. 4QAM system performs better as far as BER is concerned. The implemented turbo coded system outperforms the uncoded system in case of BER performance. This system can be used for improved performance of data communication in LTE and WiMax.
