For high speed orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) plus multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) multiplexing, a new coded layered space-time-frequency (LSTF) architecture with iterative signal processing at the receiver is proposed, where each independent codeword is threaded in the three-dimensional (3D) space-time-frequency transmission resource array. The iterative receiver structure is adopted consisting of a joint minimum-mean-square-error soft-interference-cancellation (MMSE-SIC) detector and the maximum a posteriori (MAP) convolutional decoders. Simulation results show that the proposed LSTF architecture can achieve almost the same performance as the LSTF (i.e., LSTF-a) where coding is applied across the whole information stream. However, due to its structure of multiple parallel lower speed encoders/decoders with shorter codeword length, the proposed LSTF architecture can be more easily implemented than the LSTF-a.
