In this paper, iterative adaptive soft parallel interference canceller (ASPIC) is proposed for turbo coded multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) multiplexing. ASPIC is applied to transform a MIMO channel into single-input multiple-output (SIMO) channels for maximum ratio diversity combining (MRC). In the ASPIC, replicas of the interference are generated and subtracted from the received signals. For the generation of replicas with higher reliability, iterative ASPIC is proposed. It performs the iterative interference cancellation by feedback of the log-likelihood ratio (LLR) sequence obtained as the turbo decoder output. For iterative AS-PIC, at the transmitter, the information sequence and parity sequence are transmitted from different antennas. In this paper, the achievable bit error rate (BER) performance, in a Rayleigh fading channel, for the turbo coded MIMO multiplexing with the proposed iterative ASPIC system is evaluated by computer simulation.
