A multiuser precoding algorithm based on matching weighted signal-to-leakage-and-noise ratio (SLNR) is proposed for multiuser MIMO downlink systems. In the proposed algorithm, the matching weight factor is selected based on the effective channel gain, and the leakage power caused by each user is weighted by the factor. The precoding vector is obtained by maximizing the matching weighted SLNR. Simulation results show the superiority of the proposed scheme in terms of bit error rate over the conventional SLNR schemes.
