The performance of a decision-directed channel estimation scheme is analyzed in the context of both OFDM and MC-CDMA systems. A difficulty associated with the employment of the Least Squares (LS) approach to the problem of a posteriori channel estimation in the context of a MC-CDMA system is described and a suitable MMSE-based estimator is proposed instead. It is demonstrated that the computational complexity associated with the MMSE estimation method proposed is relatively high in compararison to that of the conventional LS technique. Thus a low-complexity version of the MMSE estimator is proposed. The MC-CDMA system using a low-complexity MMSE estimator proposed is shown to outperform the corresponding OFDM-based scheme.
