The performance of various iterated soft-input soft-output (SISO) multiuser detection (MUD) techniques is evaluated and compared for the case of overloaded condition for symbol-synchronous uncoded Code-Division Multiple Access (CDMA) systems over Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel. We show that, via computer simulation, while the Bit-Error Rate (BER) performance of the serial version of the Symbol-Level iterated (SLi) SISO MUD technique is inferior to its parallel counterpart, its convergence rate is the faster between the two. Yet, the Chip-Level iterated (CLi) SISO MUD performs the best. Moreover, the Max-Log-MAP version of the CLi SISO MUD complementing the recently proposed Low-Density Signature (LDS) structure is introduced and compared to its Log-MAP version. The sensitivity of the various CLi SISO MUD techniques to the existence of the short-cycles in the underlying factor graph of the LDS structure is also analyzed. Our simulations confirm that the Max-Log-MAP version performs better compared to its more complex Log-MAP version in higher system loading condition. We also show that a performance close to single-user bound can be achieved at higher Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) regime for system loading of up to 250%.
