When the maximum number of best candidates retained at each tree search level of the K-Best Sphere Detection (SD) is kept low for the sake of maintaining a low memory requirement and computational complexity, the SD may result in a considerable performance degradation in comparison to the full-search based Maximum Likelihood (ML) detector. In order to circumvent this problem, in this contribution we propose a novel complexity-reduction scheme, referred to as the Apriori-LLRThreshold (ALT) based technique for the K-best SD, which was based on the exploitation of the a priori LLRs provided by the outer channel decoder in the context of iterative detection aided channel coded systems. For example, given a BER of 10?5, a near-ML performance is achieved in an (8×4)-element rank-deficient 4-QAM system, despite imposing a factor two reduced detection candidate list generation related complexity and a factor eight reduced extrinsic LLR calculation related complexity, when compared to the conventional SD-aided iterative benchmark receiver. The associated memory requirements were also reduced by a factor of eight.
