Multiuser multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) wireless systems have great potential in improving information rate, diversity and resistance to against interference. The primary objective of this paper is to derive for broadband signaling a new iterative frequency domain (FD) multiuser MIMO signal detection technique for joint-over-antenna (JA) detection. The proposed detector is based on soft-cancellation and minimum mean square error (MMSE) filtering, followed by maximum a posteriori probability (MAP) detector to detect several of each users transmit antennas. The purpose of jointly detecting several transmit antennas is to preserve the degrees of freedom (DoF) for MMSE. Computational complexities with FD and its time domain (TD) counterpart are evaluated in this paper, and it is shown that FD requires significantly lower complexity than TD. Numerical results show that JA significantly outperforms the receiver that detects transmit antenna signals antenna-by- antenna (AA). The proposed iterative FD JA technique achieves larger performance gains compared to AA when the total number of transmit antennas is larger than the number of receiver antennas, as well as in the presence of spatial correlation.
