Interference Cancellation (IC) receivers can be used in CDMA cellular systems to improve the capacity. The IC receivers can be divided into two main categories, Single-User Detectors (SUD) and Multi-User Detectors (MUD). They have different characteristics in terms of intra-cell and inter-cell interference cancellation ability. In this paper we propose two new IC receivers that combines the properties of SUD and MUD receivers. The first one is a Serial IC receiver followed by the Normalized Griffiths' algorithm (SING). The second one is an Integrated Serial IC and Normalized Griffiths' algorithm (iSING). We first compare their basic single-cell performance with the conventional RAKE receiver, the Serial IC and the Normalized Griffiths' Algorithm. Next, we examine their multi-cell performance by doing multi-cell link-level simulations. The results show that even though the Serial IC receiver has good single-cell performance, the proposed receivers have as much as 35-40% higher capacity than the Serial IC receiver in the multi-cell case under the ideal conditions assumed in this paper.
