Optimum Vector Perturbation Minimizing Total MSE in Multiuser MIMO Downlink
We propose a new vector precoding for the down-link of multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. The proposed scheme can be thought as the minimum mean square error (MMSE) version of the vector perturbation technique. We generalize the vector perturbation by allowing the data vector to be perturbed by an arbitrary vector. After the modulo operation at receivers, the remaining part of the perturbation is dealt with as the co-channel interference. We derive the total mean square error (MSE) of the received signal, and find the optimum perturbation vector that minimizes the total MSE. Simulation results show that our scheme outperforms the other compared schemes at all signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs), while the computational complexity is not increased.
