The paper details the simulation of a single user MIMO receiver operating according to the 3GPP/LTE standard applying a Parallel or Successive Interference Cancellation (PIC/SIC) strategy to a multicarrier (OFDMA/SC-FDMA) scheme. The algorithm details are analyzed and the PIC and SIC cancellation strategies are simulated and compared on random MIMO selective fading channels, considering limited complexities. The best PIC and SIC schemes for a given limited complexity (8 turbo decoding iterations per codeword) are compared for different codeblock lengths and spatial correlation scenarios over an EPA channel model. The 2 cycles SIC scheme shows the best performance over the selected scenarios, offering gains over the non-iterative schemes (measured at BLER values of 0.1) ranging from 1 to 4 dB in the considered cases. Larger gains are obtained with higher spatial correlation and shorter codeblock lengths. Better overall performance are obtained with lower spatial correlation and longer codeblock lengths.
