|We evaluate capacity bounds for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) fading channels subject to input amplitude constraints. We focus on two practical cases, in which the transmitter: (i) employs a single antenna amplifier, which induces a constraint on the norm of the input vector, and (ii) it employs multiple amplifiers, one per antenna, which leads to independent constraints on the amplitude of each input vector entry. For both cases, we evaluate the asymptotic capacity gap between upper and lower bounds at high signal-to-noise ratio.
