MIMO-OFDM system suffers from ICI caused by frequency offset, and the ICI-SC method is a very simple way of suppressing ICI, but the existing ICI-SC method may reduce the anti-noise performance when we improve the CIR performance. This paper proposes a novel ICI-SC scheme that subcarrier signals are remapped in complex weighted data-conjugate method to solve the problem. The proposed method with the minimum phase rotation can effectively reduce the phase error caused by phase rotation of received signal; thereby it improves the system anti-noise performance. According to the simulation, the proposed method has not only a similar CIR performance with the existing method, but also a significantly better BER performance. Another problem is the bandwidth efficiency of ICI self-cancellation method is 1/2, so this paper proposes a novel remapped method of 2/3 rate data to improve the bandwidth efficiency of MIMO-OFDM system.
