Breadth first algorithms for APP detectors over MIMO channels
MetadataShow full item record
For iterative decoding of multiple antenna systems concatenated with an outer error correcting code, it is important to use an a posteriori probability detector for the MIMO detection to achieve near capacity performance. To avoid full APP detection, we propose a reduced complexity detector based on breadth first algorithms. Although these algorithms are sub-optimal, we show that they can provide a good list of candidates for the APP calculation. Furthermore, by exploiting the a priori information delivered from the outer decoder, it is possible to decrease the MIMO detector complexity at each iteration. Using simulation results, we will compare the performance of the proposed detectors with the list sphere detector.
