This letter shows that the receiver processing of the Vertical Bell Labs Layered Space-Time (V-BLAST) architecture may he viewed as a generalized decision feedback equalizer (GDFE) as applied to a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) channel. It is proven that, depending on the criterion chosen to reduce the interference, the receiver operations of the V-BLAST system are fundamentally equivalent to either a zero-forcing (ZF) or a minimum-mean-square-error (MMSE) GDFE.
