We propose an iterative soft detection algorithm based on the QR decomposition and M-algorithm (soft-QRD- M) for MIMO-OFDM incorporating error correction coding. The soft-QRD-M step generates approximate a posteriori probabilities (APPs) with significant computational savings over the optimal sum-product algorithm. Simulation results show comparable performance of the soft-QRD-M detector and SPA in a Turbo- coded iterative MIMO-OFDM receiver.
