Binary weightbooks for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) beamforming systems using quantized feedback are designed based on the Grassmannian beamforming criterion. It is shown that the Grassmannian criterion for binary weightbook design is to maximize the minimum Hamming distance of the corresponding block code. Thus, block codes that have large minimum Hamming distance can be used for binary weightbook design for MIMO beamforming systems using quantized feedback. The optimum binary weightbooks when the number of transmit antennas has value from two to six are tabulated.
