This letter describes unequal-power transmission for multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) systems with a parallel interference canceller (PIC) applied to a maximum likelihood detector (MLD) or complexity-reduced MLD at the receiver. Unequal-power transmission reduces the possibility that all substreams are incorrectly decoded. Canceling the correctly decoded substreams enables more reliable detection in the next stage. The simulation results demonstrated that unequal-power transmission improves the transmission performance of the PIC applied to MLDs or complexity-reduced MLDs, compared with equal-power transmission cases.
