Iterative receivers, which perform MMSE detection and decoding iteratively, can provide significant performance improvement compared with noniterative method. However, due to the high computational cost and numerical instability, conventional MMSE detection using a priori information can not be implemented in hardware. In this letter, we propose a newly-built iterative receiver which is division-free and numerically stable, and then we analyze the results of a fixed-point simulation and present the hardware implementation architecture.
