In this paper, the authors examine blind adaptive and iterative Decision Feedback (DF) receivers for Direct Sequence Code Division Multiple Access (DS-CDMA) systems in frequency selective channels. Code-constrained Minimum Variance (CMV) and Constant Modulus (CCM) design criteria for DF receivers based on constrained optimization techniques are investigated for scenarios subject to multipath. Computationally efficient blind adaptive Stochastic Gradient (SG) and Recursive Least Squares (RLS) algorithms are developed for estimating the parameters of DF detectors along with successive, parallel and iterative DF structures. A novel successive parallel arbitrated DF scheme is presented and combined with iterative techniques for use with cascaded DF stages in order to mitigate the deleterious effects of error propagation.
