In this paper, the authors consider low-complexity turbo equalization for Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Cyclic Prefixed Single Carrier (CPSC) systems in MIMO Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI) channels characterized by large delay spreads. A low-complexity graph based equalization is carried out in the frequency domain. Because of the reduction in correlation among the noise samples that happens for large frame sizes and delay spreads in frequency domain processing, improved performance compared to time domain processing is shown to be achieved. This improved performance is attractive for equalization in severely delay spread ISI channels like ultra-wideband channels and underwater acoustic channels.
