An efficient MIMO signal detection technique with low complexity is presented for MIMO-OFDM systems. The proposed technique has a feature of combined QRD-M and DFE detection. In our detection technique with M transmit antennas, after QRD-M detection is executed for first T detection steps, DFE detection is executed for last M - T detection steps. This approach is simple and has low complexity, because the computations for QRD-M is limited by the newly adopted parameter T. From simulation results, the complexity of the proposed technique with 4 times 4 and T = 2 is reduced by 61% compared with that of the conventional QRD-M at the expense of about 0.7dB degradation of BER performance at BER=10-4. The simulations are executed in Ricean and Rayleigh channel models. And the simulation of proposed technique is executed by using estimated channel. Through the simulations, it is ascertained that the proposed detection can be used for Ricean and Rayleigh channel models as well as estimated channel.
