Decision directed adaptive blind equalization based on the constant modulus algorithm

Abstract : In this paper, new decision directed algorithms for blind equalization of communication channels are presented. These algorithms use informations about the last decided symbol to improve the performance of the constant modulus algorithm (CMA). The main proposed technique, the so called decision directed modulus algorithm (DDMA), extends the CMA to non-CM modulations. Assuming correct decisions, it is proved that the decision directed modulus (DDM) cost function has no local minima in the combined channel-equalizer system impulse response. Additionally, a relationship between the Wiener and DDM minima is established. The other proposed algorithms can be viewed as modifications of the DDMA. They are divided into two families: stochastic gradient algorithms and recursive least squares (RLS) algorithms. Simulation results allow to compare the performance of the proposed algorithms and to conclude that they outperform well-known methods.
