We consider the uplink of a multiuser, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), frequency-time-domain spread, multi- carrier (MC), direct sequence code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) system. As other CDMA-like systems, the multiple access interference (MAI) effect still exists in such an MC DS-CDMA system. To mitigate the MAI effect, we propose user-based and group-based layered detection schemes. Specifically, to enable a trade-off between the performance and the computational complexity, the schemes only use one user's/group's soft decisions for user-based/ group-based layered detection. The results of simulations demonstrate that the proposed schemes outperform existing approaches, and their computational complexity is modest.
