In this paper, the authors propose a Conjugate Gradient (CG) based Structured Channel Estimation (SCE) scheme for Single-Carrier Frequency Domain Equalization (SC-FDE) in multiuser Direct-Sequence Ultra-WideBand (DS-UWB) systems. The Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) linear detection strategy is used and a cyclic prefix is employed. They perform the adaptive channel estimation in the frequency domain and implement the despreading in the time domain after the FDE. In this scheme, the linear MMSE detection requires the knowledge of the number of users and the noise variance.
