Parallel-SQRD for Low Complexity Successive Interference Cancellation in Per-Antenna-Coded MIMO-OFDM Schemes

Authors: D. W├╝bben, K.-D. Kammeyer
Abstract: In recent years, communication systems with multiple antennas at the transmitter and at the receiver have gained considerable interest. Layered architectures like the V-BLAST scheme are a strong candidate to exploit the capacity advantages of multiple antenna systems leading to practical wireless communication schemes with very high data rates. The combination with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), called MIMO-OFDM, with per-antenna-coding is one of the most likely implementations of multilayer architectures in frequency selective environments. In this paper, we present a novel, computational efficient implementation of successive interference cancellation (SIC) for coded MIMO-OFDM. It utilizes a parallelized version of the Sorted QR Decomposition (SQRD) to achieve the same optimized detection order for all subcarriers in order to exploit the error correction capability of the code within the SIC. In comparison to other schemes known from literature our approach requires only a fraction of computational complexity with almost the same performance.
