Channel estimation and tracking pose real problems in broadband single-carrier wireless communication systems employing multiple transmit and receive antennas. An alternative to estimating the channel is to adaptively equalize the received symbols. Several adaptive equalization solutions have been researched for systems operating in the time domain. However, these solutions tend to be computationally intensive. A low-complexity alternative is to adaptively equalize the received message in thefrequency domain. In this paper, we present an adaptive frequency-domain equalization (FDE) algorithm for implementation in single-carrier (SC) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. Furthermore, we outline a novel method of reducing theoverhead required to train the proposed equalizer. Finally, we address the issues of complexity and training sequence design.Other computationally efficient adaptive FDE algorithms for use in SC systems employing single transmit and receive antennas,receive diversity, or space-time block codes (STBC) can be found in the literature. However, the algorithm detailed in this paper can be implemented in STBC systems as well as in broadband spatial multiplexing systems, making it suitable for use in high data rateMIMO applications.
