Abstract — In this letter, we present a weighted linear parallel interference canceller (LPIC) where the multiple access interference (MAI) estimate in a stage is weighted by a factor before cancellation on Rayleigh fading and diversity channels. We obtain exact expressions for the average signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) at the output of the cancellation stages which we maximize to obtain the optimum weights for different stages. We also obtain closed-form expressions for the optimum weights for the different stages. We show that this SIR-optimized weighted LPIC scheme clearly outperforms both the matched filter (MF) detector as well as the conventional LPIC (where the weight is taken to be unity for all stages), in both near-far as well as nonnear-far conditions on Rayleigh fading and diversity channels. Index Terms — Linear parallel interference cancellation, signalto-interference ratio, fading channels
