A novel singular value decomposition (SVD) aided uplink (UL) multiuser MIMO system is proposed. In contrast to the traditional minimum mean square error (MMSE) or zero- forcing (ZF) multiuser detection (MUD) technique, the proposed method exploits the specific characteristics of the individual users' channel matrix, instead of treating all the users' channels jointly. Furthermore, two different power allocation schemes are investigated in the context of the proposed structure. One of them was designed for achieving the maximum information rate, while the other for maintaining the maximum signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). We demonstrate that the capacity of the proposed scheme using the maximum information rate based power allocation policy is higher than that of the classic ZF receiver for the UL.
