The context is on the uplink of the upcoming Long Term Evolution - Advanced (LTE-A) systems. Iterative approaches based on Parallel Interference Cancellation (PIC) and Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) are investigated, and a low-complexity solution allowing to combine interstream interference cancellation and noise enhancement reduction is proposed. Performance is evaluated for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiplexing (SC-FDM) as candidate uplink modulation schemes for LTE-A. Simulation results show that, in a 2x2 antenna configuration, the turbo processing allows a consistent improvement of the link performance, being SC-FDM the one having higher relative gain with respect to linear detection. The turbo receiver’s impact is however much reduced for both modulation schemes in a 2x4 configuration, due to the higher diversity gain provided by the additional receive antennas.

INTRODUCTION The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is currently specifying the system requirements for the upcoming Long Term Evolution - Advanced (LTE-A) systems, aiming at target peak data rates of 1 Gbits/s in local areas and 100 Mbit/s in wide areas. While in the previous Release 8 [1] only single transmit antenna schemes have been standardized for the
