This paper features some of the recent advances in study of the 802.11n Compact MIMO DRA, developed at the Sony Ericsson Research Center and Queen Mary, University of London. The indoor MIMO channel capacity is analysed in a MIMO channel model based on the ray tracing technique. The performances of the 3-element DRA are compared with a 3- element λ/2 spaced, ideal dipole uniform linear array.
