A New Approach of Detection Algorithm for Reducing Computation Complexity of MIMO systems

Mohammed Qasim Sulttan


Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technique is a key technology to strengthen and achieve high-speed and high-throughput wireless communications. . In recent years, it was observed that frequent detecting techniques could improve the performance (e.g., symbol error rate ‘SER’) of different modern digital communication systems. But these systems faced a problem of high complexity for the practical implementation.  To solve the problem of high complexity, this work proposed Frequent Improve K-best Sphere Decoding (FIKSD) algorithm with stopping rule depending on the Manhattan metric. Manhattan metric is proposed to use with FIKSD in order to achieve the lowest complexity. FIKSD is a powerful tool to achieve a high performance close to the maximum likelihood (ML), with less complexity. The simulation results show a good reduction in computation complexity with a cost of slight performance degradation within 1dB; the proposed FIKSD requires 0% to 94% and 82% to 97% less complexity than Improved K-best Sphere Decoder (IKSD) and K-best Sphere Decoder (KSD) respectively. This makes the algorithm more suitable for implementation in wireless communication systems.
