Many types of adaptive algorithms based on the MMSE criterion for co-channel interference suppression in DS/CDMA systems have been studied in great detail. However, these algorithms have such a problem that the training speed is greatly dropped under the strong near-far problem. In this paper, we propose and analyze an adaptive filter based on the Maximum Signal to Interference and Noise Ratio (MSINR) criterion, called adaptive MSINR filter. This filter is basically equivalent to the adaptive filter based on the MMSE criterion. However, due to the structual difference, the convergence speed is greatly improved. Specifically, the de-spreading vector in this filter is so renewed as to maximize the Signal to Interference and Noise Ratio (SINR) by minimizing the de-spread interference and noise power under the condition that the de-spread desired signal power keeps constant. So the proposed filter uses the estimated interference and noise signal calculated by subtracting the estimated desired signal from the received signal. It is just the reason why the adaptive MSINR filter shows remarkable convergence speed. And to satisfy the constant signal power condition, the projection matrix onto the orthogonal complement of the desired signal space is used for the de-spreading vector. For the proposed filter, we analyze the convergence modes and also investigate the de-spread interfernce and noise power for calculating the theoretical SINR curve. Then, we conduct some computer simulations in order to show the difference between this filter and the conventional one in terms of the SINR convergence speed. As the result, we confirm that the adaptive filter based on the MSINR criterion achieves significant progress in terms of the SINR convergence speed.
