We propose a sub-optimal but computationally efficient Modified Fano Detection algorithm (MFD) for V-BLAST systems. This algorithm utilizes the QR decomposition of the channel matrix and the sequential detection scheme based on tree searching to find the optimal symbol sequence. For more reliable signal detection, the decoder is designed to move backward for the specified value at the end of the tree. This results in significant reduction of the complexity while the performance of MFD is comparable to that of ML detector.
