Semi-Blind Spatial Equalisation for MIMO Channels with Quadrature Amplitude Modulation

Chen, S., Hanzo, L. and Yao, W. (2008) Semi-Blind Spatial Equalisation for MIMO Channels with Quadrature Amplitude Modulation At IEEE ICC'08, China. 19 - 23 May 2008. , pp. 599-603.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Semi-blind spatial equalisation is considered for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems that employ high-throughput quadrature amplitude modulation scheme. A minimum number of training symbols, equal to the number of transmitters, are first utilised to provide a rough least squares channel estimate of the system’s MIMO channel matrix for the initialisation of the spatial equalisers’ weight vectors. A constant modulus algorithm aided soft decision-directed blind algorithm is then employed to adapt the spatial equalisers. This semiblind scheme has a very-low computational complexity, and it converges fast to the minimum mean-square-error spatial equalisation solution as demonstrated in our simulation study.
