Unformatted text preview: Kevin Buckley - 2007 1 ECE 8770 Topics in Digital Communications - Sp. 2007 Lecture 7,8 4 Channel Equalization 4.2 Linear Equalization 4.2.2 Mean Squared Error (MSE) Criterion Consider the DT linear time invariant channel models established in Section 3 of the Course. This model has as its input the symbol sequence I k . It output could be, for example: 1) the sampled output of the receiver demodulator; or 2) the sampled output, denoted y k , of the receiver filter matched to the pulse shape h ( t ) at the channel output; or 3) the output, denoted v k , of the DT filter which noise- whitens the sampled matched filter output y k . As an example we will consider processing v k . Here we consider a DT linear time invariant equalizer with input v k , transfer func- tion C ( z ), impulse response c k , and output sequence ˆ I k which is to be considered an estimate of the symbol sequence I k . Note that ˆ I k is implicitly a function of the equalizer transfer function C ( z ), or equivalently the equalizer impulse response c k . Consider, as equalizer design objective, the MSE cost function J = E {| I k- ˆ I k | 2 } . (1) The Minimum MMSE (MMSE) equalizer is the solution to the problem min C ( z ) J . (2) That is , the design problem is to select C ( z ) (or equivalently c k ) to minimize the cost J . FIR C(z) First consider an equalizer which has a structure which is constrained to be FIR. The formulation for this in the Course Text, shown here in Figure 1(a), is non- causal. K is the FIR equalizer memory depth design parameter. The MMSE will decrease as K increases. However, increasing K increases computational require- ments, and as we will see, for adaptive equalizers increasing K can actually lead to increased MSE. The formulation we will use is shown in Figure 1(b). It is a causal FIR equalizer of length K 1 + 1 and latency (delay) Δ. K 1 and Δ are design parameters. In terms of the noncausal equalizer design parameter K , reasonable values for K 1 and Δ are K 1 = 2 K and Δ. If the channel has some bulk propagation delay, say of B symbols, then Δ > B is desirable. For example, Δ = B + K 1 2 is reasonable.

Define the error as e k- ∆ = I k- ∆- c T v k , (4) which is a linear function of the coefficient vector c . Consider the cost J = J ( c /K 1 , ∆) = E {| e k- ∆ | 2 } , (5) where the notation J ( c /K 1 , ∆) explicitly shows that the cost is a function of c and it depends on given values of K 1 and ∆. We have that J ( c /K 1 , ∆) = E {| I k- ∆...
