Description: In 4G, multi-stream QAM-detection is an important ingredient for single-/multi-user MIMO and interference cancellation/suppressing baseband signal processing. There is a vast amount of literature available on linear/non-linear detectors that address the problem, with a huge spread in terms of performance and implementation complexity. It is a difficult task to make the right choice for mobile station implementation, as due to the competitive landscape, optimum performance is desired on one hand, while on the other hand, due to the thermal/area/energy constraints of the mobile station the affordable complexity is strictly constrained. With introduction of 5G, the performance/complexity tradeoff aspect will get even more challenging. The purpose of this thesis is to implement a provided novel concept in C/C++ and integrate it into an existing link level simulator in order to enable exploration of the benefits and drawbacks of the solution.
