An improved signal-to-jamming and noise ratio (SJNR) method is proposed for the linear precoding of multiuser MIMO downlink systems. To well balance suppression of co-channel interference and suppression of noise, the proposed method modifies the noise variance term to argument of a piecewise linear function, and then enhances the suppression of noise. A dynamic power allocation scheme is also introduced to further decrease the overall average bit error rate of the system. Simulation results prove the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
