In this paper, mixed Gibbs sampling multiple- input multiple-output (MIMO) detection with forcible search is proposed. In conventional Gibbs sampling MIMO detection, the problem of stalling occurs under high signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) which degrades the detection performance. Mixed GS (MGS) is one solution to this problem. In the MGS, random sampling is carried out with a constant probability without judging if a current search is at a local minimum. In the proposed scheme, combined with MGS, multiple candidate symbols are forcibly changed when the search is captured by a local minimum. The search restarts away from the local minimum which effectively enlarges the search area in a solution space. Numerical results obtained through computer simulation show that the proposed scheme achieves better performance in a large scale MIMO system with QPSK signals.
