Iterated Soft-Decision Interference Cancellation for CDMA

  • Ralf R. Müller
  • Johannes B. Huber


Multiuser detection by iterated soft-decision interference cancellation is known to achieve almost single user performance in low and moderate interference scenarios. In this paper, it is shown how this detection scheme can be further improved by adaptive calculation of the soft-decision rule. This enables a significantly higher number of active users signaling within the same bandwidth to be detected, implying that spectral efficiency is increased.
