A procedure to achieve near-field multiple input multiple output (MIMO) communication with equally strong channels is demonstrated in this paper. This has applications in near-field wireless communications, such as Chip-to-Chip (C2C) communication or wireless links between printed circuit boards. Designing the architecture of these wireless C2C networks is, however, based on standard engineering design tools. To attain this goal, a network optimization procedure is proposed, which introduces decoupling and matching networks. As a demonstration, this optimization procedure is applied to a 2-by-2 MIMO with dipole antennas. The potential benefits and design trade-offs are discussed for implementation of wireless radio-frequency interconnects in chip-to-chip or device-to-device communication such as in an Internet-of-Things scenario.
