Performance of Frequency Domain DFE Using Subcarrier Allocation
Due to the usage of single carrier, the performance of SC-FDMA systems degrades in deep frequency selective fading channels. In this paper, the authors propose a structure of equalizer based on frequency domain decision feedback which could be used for multi-user SC-FDMA systems. This algorithm is applicable to various carrier allocations in multi-user systems such as localized allocation, distributed allocation, and Frequency-Hopping (FH) allocation. To reduce the complexity, it is not necessary to derive the inversion of matrix, which is required in the traditional decision feedback equalizer for Single Carrier Frequency Domain Equalization (SC-FDE-DFE).
