In MIMO systems, the channel identification is important to distinguish transmitted signals from multiple transmit antennas. One of the most typical channel identification schemes is to employ a code division multiplexing (CDM) based scheme in which a unique spreading code is assigned to distinguish both BS and MS antenna elements. However, by increasing the number of base stations and transmit antenna elements, large spreading codes and pilot symbols are required to distinguish the received power from all the connectable BS, as well as to identify all the CSI for the combination of transmitter and receiver antenna elements. Furthermore, the complexity of maximum likelihood detection (MLD) for implementation of MIMO is a considerable work. To reduce these problems, in this paper, we propose the parallel detection algorithm using multiple QR decompositions with permuted channel matrix (MQRD-PCM) with discrete pilot signal assignment and iterative channel identification for MIMO/OFDM.
