Summary In this paper, we investigate layered space-time equalization (LSTE) architectures for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) frequency-selective channels. At each stage or layer of detection, a MIMO delayed decision feedback sequence estimator (MIMO-DDFSE) is used to tentatively detect a group of selected data streams, among which a subgroup of data streams are output and are canceled from the received signals. With the proposed architectures, the numbers of the tentatively detected data streams and output data streams can be different at different LSTE stages,while the MIMO-DDFSE can also reduce to the special cases of multiple-input single-output decision feedback equalizer (MISO-DFE), MISO-DDFSE, and MIMO-DFE, allowing tradeoffs between performance and complexity. We also derive the equalizer coefficients, discuss timing recovery, and consider channel estimation. Simulation results demonstrate the performance of the proposed LSTE structures and the tradeoffs between performance and complexity of the multistage structure and the single-stage version. We also demonstrate the impact of imperfect channel estimation, imperfect interference cancellation, the number of receive antennas, filter length, and oversampling on performance.
