Based on an analysis of the error patterns in lattice-reduction (LR) precoding in a multiple-antenna broadcast channel, this paper proposes a simple precoding technique that can reduce the quantization error. The proposed scheme establishes a lattice list to provide more candidates for transmission power reduction based on the analysis of the patterns of the error in the LR precoding method [9]. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme matches the BER performance of more complex precedents (such as the vector perturbation using sphere encoding) with significant saving in complexity.
