Hybrid MIMO communication systems combine spatial multiplexing with diversity gain to achieve both high spectral efficiency and link reliability. The authors present a novel hybrid scheme that allows the use of any number of spatial multiplexing layers, plus one quasi-orthogonal layer (ABBA) of either 3 or 4 antennas. They transform the system equations in terms of linear dispersion codes, from which they derive a low-complexity, ordered, successive interference cancellation receiver based on sorted QR decomposition. Symbol detection is carried out in a unified manner, both for spatial and space-time coded symbols. They show that this novel scheme outperforms other recent proposals in terms of bit error rate, even those using CSI at the transmitter to pre-code.
