We investigate linear and nonlinear space-time minimum mean-square-error (MMSE) multiuser detectors for high data rate wireless code-division multiple-access (CDMA) networks. The centralized reverse-link detectors comprise a space-time feedforward filter and a multiuser feedback filter which processes the previously detected symbols of all in-sector users. The feedforward filter processes chip-rate samples from a bank of chip-matched filters which operate on the baseband outputs from an array of antennas. We present an adaptive multiuser recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm which determines the MMSE adjusted filter coefficients with less complexity than individual adaptation for each user. We calculate the outage probabilities and isolate the effects of antenna, diversity, and interference suppression gains for linear and nonlinear filtering and for CDMA systems with varying levels of system control (e.g., timing control, code assignment, cell layout). For eight users transmitting uncoded 2-Mb/s quadrature phase-shift keying with a spreading gain of eight chips per symbol over a fading channel with a multipath delay spread of 1.25 μs, the performance of a three-antenna feedforward/feedback detector was within 1 dB (in signal-to-noise ratio per antenna) of ideal detection in the absence of interference. By training for 10% of a 5-ms frame, RLS adaptation enabled the same detector to suffer less than a 0.5-dB penalty due to the combined effects of imperfect coefficients and error propagation. The advantage of nonlinear feedforward/feedback detection over linear feedforward detection was shown to be significantly larger for a CDMA system with enhanced system control
