In this paper, after a description of the principles of iterative (turbo) multiuser detection for CDMA systems, a new structure, based on a linear user separator, is introduced and analyzed. The new user separator processes the matched filter outputs according to a minimum mean-square-error (MMSE) criterion for the first few iterations, while it bypasses the MMSE filter when the interferers' bits are known with some reliability. This new receiver is tested by simulation and compared with other receivers previously introduced in literature. Also, a way of studying and designing iterative multiuser receivers is given by adapting the method of EXtrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) charts. With the EXIT charts, the receiver performance (in an information-theoretic sense) can be evaluated as it evolves along the iterations. Thus, the receiver threshold can be reliably estimated.
