Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Traditionally, frequency-domain equalisers have been used to equalise the single-carrier block transmission (SCBT) signals. However, to support the frequency-domain equaliser, two fast Fourier transform modules are required, which will increase the circuit complexity and chip area. A low-complexity time-domain linear equaliser for SCBT is proposed, which is less complicated than conventional frequencydomain equalisers, at the expense of an acceptable degradation in performance. For instance, for 60 GHz conference room non-line-of-sight channels, the complexity can be reduced by half at the expense of a 1.5 dB performance loss.
