We propose a new diversity scheme for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing/multi-input multi-output (OFDM/MIMO) systems. The proposed scheme, named turbo layered space-frequency coded OFDM (TLSFC-OFDM), exploits the turbo principle with space hopping (SH). The TLSFC-OFDM system with SH provides a spatial coding so that we can obtain the transmit diversity. We also introduce a successive interference cancellation (SIC) algorithm that requires no ordering and fewer iterations to converge. As a result, this scheme reduces computational complexity. Computer simulation results show that the unordered SIC-based TLSFC-OFDM system outperforms the OFDM/H-BLAST system. It is also shown that the proposed system can operate even with fewer receive antennas than transmit antennas.
