Optimal MMSE successive interference cancellation in group-wise STBC MIMO systems. (English) Zbl 1173.93350
Summary: An optimal minimum mean square error successive interference cancellation (OMMSE SIC) scheme for Groupwise space-time block coding (G-STBC) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems is presented. In such a system, transmit antennas are partitioned into several STBC encoding groups and each group transmits independent data stream which is individually STBC encoded. On the receiver side, by exploring the temporal constraint provided by STBC, an equivalent channel model similar to the one in standard vertical Bell laboratories layered space-time (V-BLAST) systems is generated. Then OMMSE SIC algorithm is performed to detect all the transmitted information. Simulation compares the proposed scheme with non-ordering MMSE SIC scheme and the corresponding equal data rate scheme in V-BLAST systems with the same receive antennas’ number. Result shows that the proposed scheme has better performance than non-ordering MMSE SIC scheme and by introducing more transmit antennas and adopting the OMMSE SIC scheme, better performance also can be achieved than corresponding V-BLAST systems.
