TL;DR: This article surveys frequency domain equalization (FDE) applied to single-carrier (SC) modulation solutions and discusses similarities and differences of SC and OFDM systems and coexistence possibilities, and presents examples of SC-FDE performance capabilities.
Abstract: Broadband wireless access systems deployed in residential and business environments are likely to face hostile radio propagation environments, with multipath delay spread extending over tens or hundreds of bit intervals. Orthogonal frequency-division multiplex (OFDM) is a recognized multicarrier solution to combat the effects of such multipath conditions. This article surveys frequency domain equalization (FDE) applied to single-carrier (SC) modulation solutions. SC radio modems with frequency domain equalization have similar performance, efficiency, and low signal processing complexity advantages as OFDM, and in addition are less sensitive than OFDM to RF impairments such as power amplifier nonlinearities. We discuss similarities and differences of SC and OFDM systems and coexistence possibilities, and present examples of SC-FDE performance capabilities.

TL;DR: The authors discuss the potential of OFDM signaling, with its limitations and inherent problems, as well as another potential technique that has so far been overlooked: single-carrier transmission with frequency- domain equalization, and introduces coded-OFDM (COFDM), which makes use of channel coding and frequency-domain interleaving.
Abstract: The authors discuss the potential of OFDM signaling, with its limitations and inherent problems, as well as another potential technique that has so far been overlooked: single-carrier transmission with frequency-domain equalization. The carrier synchronisation issue is dealt with before the authors introduce coded-OFDM (COFDM), which makes use of channel coding and frequency-domain interleaving. >

TL;DR: This tutorial paper aims at providing an overview of nonlinear equalization methods as a key ingredient in receivers of SCM for wideband transmission, and reviews both hybrid (with filters implemented both in time and frequency domain) and all-frequency-domain iterative structures.
Abstract: In recent years single carrier modulation (SCM) has again become an interesting and complementary alternative to multicarrier modulations such as orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). This has been largely due to the use of nonlinear equalizer structures implemented in part in the frequency domain by means of fast Fourier transforms, bringing the complexity close to that of OFDM. Here a nonlinear equalizer is formed with a linear filter to remove part of intersymbol interference, followed by a canceler of remaining interference by using previous detected data. Moreover, the capacity of SCM is similar to that of OFDM in highly dispersive channels only if a nonlinear equalizer is adopted at the receiver. Indeed, the study of efficient nonlinear frequency domain equalization techniques has further pushed the adoption of SCM in various standards. This tutorial paper aims at providing an overview of nonlinear equalization methods as a key ingredient in receivers of SCM for wideband transmission. We review both hybrid (with filters implemented both in time and frequency domain) and all-frequency-domain iterative structures. Application of nonlinear frequency domain equalizers to a multiple input multiple output scenario is also investigated, with a comparison of two architectures for interference reduction. We also present methods for channel estimation and alternatives for pilot insertion. The impact on SCM transmission of impairments such as phase noise, frequency offset and saturation due to high power amplifiers is also assessed. The comparison among the considered frequency domain equalization techniques is based both on complexity and performance, in terms of bit error rate or throughput.

TL;DR: An iterative block decision feedback equaliser (IB-DFE) for single carrier modulation is proposed which operates on blocks of the receive signal, thus allowing the use of error correction codes on the feedback data signal.
Abstract: An iterative block decision feedback equaliser (IB-DFE) for single carrier modulation is proposed. Filtering operations are implemented by discrete Fourier transforms (DFTs) which yield a reduced computational complexity, for both filter design and signal processing, when compared to existing DFEs. Moreover, the new IB-DFE operates on blocks of the receive signal, thus allowing the use of error correction codes on the feedback data signal.

TL;DR: Using static and time-varying channel impulse responses, the authors analyze the performance of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing on multipath fading channels and show that, provided it employs a frequency domain equalizer, single-carrier transmission substantially outperforms OFDM signalling.
Abstract: Using static and time-varying channel impulse responses, the authors analyze the performance of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) on multipath fading channels. They show that, provided it employs a frequency domain equalizer, single-carrier transmission substantially outperforms OFDM signalling, a result that contradicts the usual claims that OFDM signalling is more resistant to multipath fading than is standard single-carrier transmission. This finding is supported by computer simulation results and analytical arguments related to the decision process. The implication of the results is that not only OFDM signalling increases the system sensitivity to nonlinear distortion and carrier synchronization errors, but it also turns out to offer no performance advantage on fading radio channels. >
