In the conventional zero-forcing ordered successive interference cancellation (ZF-OSIC) or minimum mean square error ordered successive interference cancellation (MMSE-OSIC) detection algorithm of vertical Bell-Labs layered space-time (V-BLAST) architecture, there exists an undesirable processing delay due to the calculation of the matrix pseudo-inverse and power reordering in detecting the symbol in each layer. The parallel interference cancellation (PIC) algorithm has a lower processing delay but poorer performance. Based on the features of SIC and PIC algorithms, an integrated PIC and OSIC detection (IPOD) algorithm is proposed which can lower the complexity as well as the processing delay of the whole algorithm with little performance loss. Moreover, there is an alterable parameter in IPOD algorithm which can be changed to obtain different trade off between complexity and performance. Thus, the proposed algorithm is more feasible for practical applications.
