In this paper, we propose to reduce the complexity of both the Approx-Log-MAP algorithm as well as of the Max-Log-MAP algorithm, which were designed for soft-decision aided PSK detectors. First of all, we extend the shown a posteriori PSK symbol probability formula and streamline it by eliminating its unnecessary calculations in the context of the Approx-Log-MAP algorithm. Secondly, we reduce the complexity of the Max-Log-MAP algorithm, where the maximum a posteriori symbol probability may be obtained without evaluating and comparing all the candidate symbol probabilities. Furthermore, we apply our new soft detection arrangement to a variety of coded systems. Our simulation results demonstrate that a significant detection complexity reduction was achieved by our design without any performance loss. For example, a factor two complexity reduction was achieved by the proposed Max-Log-MAP algorithm, when it was invoked for detecting QPSK symbols, which is expected to be significantly higher, when invoked for 16QAM
