Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) multiplexing is an attractive technique to achieve very high-speed transmission with a limited bandwidth. Recently, we proposed an iterative frequency-domain interference cancellation (FDIC) for single-carrier MIMO (SC-MIMO) multiplexing. In our previous work, assuming that the interference from the other antennas can be perfectly cancelled in FDIC, one-dimensional minimum mean square error (1D-MMSE) frequency-domain equalization (FDE) was used. However, the residual interference remains after performing FDIC. In this paper, to improve the transmission performance with iterative FDIC, we replace 1D-MMSE FDE by 2D-MMSE FDE, which takes the residual interference from the other antennas after FDIC into account. We investigate, by computer simulation, the throughput performance of rate compatible punctured turbo coded hybrid ARQ (RCPT-HARQ) with MIMO multiplexing in a frequency-selective Rayleigh fading channel.
