In this paper, the error performance of various successive interference cancellation (IC) schemes is analyzed in spatially multiplexed multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. First, we classify the successive IC scheme by their ordering strategy. In addition, considering the channel coding is usually applied for the conventional wireless communication systems, we apply the channel coding to the spatially multiplexed MIMO systems and evaluate the block error rate (BLER) as the error performance of the systems. Using numerical simulations, the error performance of IC schemes is shown according to various system parameters, e.g., the number of transmit and receive antennas, the utilized linear filter, and the MIMO fading channel characteristics. In this way, this paper analyses and compares the error performances of the successive IC in various perspectives.
