Abstract

This paper proposes a new frequency-domain pre-coding algorithm for the downlink multi-user MIMO system in a frequency-selective fading channel, where each user is equipped with multiple antennas. The proposed algorithm is based on the minimum sum-mean-square-error (Min-SMSE) criterion, which is able to eliminate both the multi-user and multi-antenna interferences, resulting in an improved bit error rate (BER) performance. Compared with the traditional optimal Min-SMSE algorithm, the proposed algorithm can reduce the computational complexity through simplifying the iterative and power allocation processes. Furthermore, the theoretical BER and ergodic sum-rate are derived in detail. In addition, we define and analyze the complexity of the pre-coding algorithms. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm compares favorably with the optimal Min-SMSE and traditional block diagonalization (BD) algorithms in the sense of the ergodic sum-rate due to the approximately equal power allocation. The BER performance of the proposed algorithm is close to that of the optimal one and much better than that of the BD algorithm in both the uncorrelated and correlated channels. Moreover, the computational complexity of the sub-optimal Min-SMSE algorithm is significantly less than that of its optimal counterpart, especially in the low SNR region.
