A new improved soft-feedback functional link artificial neural-network (ISFFLANN) based nonlinear channel equalizer is proposed in this paper. By using the functional expansion utilities, the ISF-FLANN does not need the hidden layers, which are existed in most of the multilayer perceptron network (MLP)-based equalizers. So the ISF-FLANN exhibits much simpler structure and thus requires less amount of computation during the training mode. We find that the use of soft feedback can greatly improve… CONTINUE READING
