Blind Adaptive Channel Equalization with Performance Analysis

Abstract

A new adaptive multiple-shift correlation (MSC)-based blind channel equalizer (BCE) for multiple FIR channels is proposed. The performance of the MSC-based BCE under channel order mismatches due to small head and tail channel coefficient is investigated. The performance degradation is a function of the optimal output SINR, the optimal output power, and the control vector. This paper also proposes a simple but effective iterative method to improve the performance. Simulation examples are demonstrated to show the effectiveness of the proposed method and the analyses.
