Abstract

The Constant Modulus Algorithm (CMA) has been proved to be very effective to equalize non-minimum-phase channels blindly. However, CMA suffers from a residual intersymbol interference (ISI) and slow convergence when applied to high order non-constant modulus (e.g. QAM) constellations and the equalizer is an FIR filter. In this paper we propose a method able to provide lower ISI and faster convergence rate than CMA, based on cost functions specifically matched to the signal constellation. Differently from CMA methods, where the matching between a certain number of cumulants between the equalizer output and the signal constellation is the driving criterion, the cost function used in this paper tries to force the equalizer output to belong to the signal constellation. The superiority of the proposed approach with respect to conventional approaches is verified by simulation.
