Equalization is crucial in mitigating inter-carrier and inter-symbol interference in a multica rrier system. To ease equalization, typically a cyclic prefix (CP) is inserted between successi ve symbols. When the channel order exceeds the CP length, equalization can be accomp lished by placing a timedomain equalizer (TEQ), in the form of a finite impulse response (FIR) filter, in cascade w ith the channel. The TEQ is designed to produce a shortened effective impulse response. Alternatively, a… CONTINUE READING
