Multiple transmit and receive antenna arrays can be used to form multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) systems for diversity and multiplexing in wireless communications. In this paper, we develop iterative signal-detection schemes based on energy spreading transform (EST) [15] for MIMO channels. The EST in a MIMO system improves signal-detection performance by spreading the symbol energy over the space and time domain. It also enables iterative signal detection without employing channel coding. Analytical and simulation results demonstrate that the performance of the proposed schemes is very close to that of the genie-aided receiver when there are a sufficiently large number of receive antennas and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is above a threshold.
