In this paper, a singular value decomposition based signature matrix inversion (SVD-SI) scheme is proposed for downlink in multiuser MIMO systems, which is more efficient and able to reduce the feedback overhead by limited feedback. The wireless channels are decomposed into several eigenmodes with the right singular vectors as the spatial signatures, which are quantized and fed back to the base station. Then, the operating users are selected according to their signatures, and the multiuser interference is eliminated by the signature matrix inversion scheme. Finally, we characterize the performance of SVD-SI under limited feedback, and give the recommended feedback rate under different scenarios. Numerical results show that the proposed scheme achieves significant throughput improvement while reducing the feedback overhead.
