Optimal finite impulse response (FIR) transmit and receive filterbanks are derived for block-based data transmissions over frequency-selective additive Gaussian noise (AGN) channels by maximizing mutual information subject to a fixed transmit-power constraint. Both FIR and pole-zero channels are considered. The inherent flexibility of the proposed transceivers is exploited to derive, as special cases, zero-forcing (ZF) and minimum mean-square error receive filterbanks. The transmit filterbank converts transmission over a frequency-selective fading channel, affected by additive colored noise, into a set of independent flat fading subchannels with uncorrelated noise samples. Two loading algorithms are also developed to distribute transmit power and number of bits across the usable subchannels, while adhering to an upper bound on the bit error rate (BER). Reduction of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) margin required to satisfy the prescribed BER is achieved by coding each subchannel's bit stream. The potential of the proposed transceivers is illustrated and compared to discrete multitone (DMT) with simulated examples.
