And the signal output after judgment from the signal decision device is transmitted to the fast Fourier transformer and the iterative updater respectively. The fast Fourier transformer performs Fourier transform to the frequency domain value of the signal after judgment, and then transmits the result to the iterative updater. At this point, the iterative updater can start the next iteration of the equalization operation and repeat it until the iteration stop condition is reached, so that the output signal can reach the design requirements.

In a preferred embodiment of the present invention, the signal decision device can be implemented in a variety of ways, for example, by judging the input signal using a hard decision criterion, for example, the point on constellation diagram which has minimum Euclidean distance to the input value is taken as the signal decision value. However, Fast Fourier Transformer (FFT) and Inverse Fast Fourier Transformer (IFFT) can use the standard calculation module.

In addition, an embodiment of the present application also provides a receiver system, comprising any single carrier equalizer as discussed above, also comprising an analog-to-digital converter, synchronous restorer, serial parallel converter, controller and other components, which be set based on the actual demands. Since it is possible to combine the existing receiver system and the single carrier equalizer of the present application to receive signals, detailed illustration is omitted.

In summary, the single carrier equalizer in the embodiment of the present application and the receiver system comprising the single carrier equalizer are used to gradually improve the performance of the frequency domain equalizer by the way of iterations. The present invention uses an iterative updater to conduct a first iteration based on the frequency domain value of the input signal and the frequency domain value of the channel of the input signal, and transmits the iteration result to the inverse fast Fourier transformer. And the signal decision device is used to judge the value of the output of the inverse fast Fourier transformer, and the output signal of the signal decision device is transmitted to the fast Fourier transformer and the iterative updater respectively, that is, the signal after the fast Fourier transform is also entered into the iterative updater, at this point the iterative updater can start the next iteration of the equalization operation and repeat it until the iteration stop condition is reached; And during equalization, it uses iterative factor calculator to improve the performance of single carrier iterative equalizer under narrowband interference, and reduces the influence of narrowband interference. Further, it enhances the anti-multipath and mobile performance of the equalizer, and enhances the demodulation performance of entire receiver system.

The embodiments described above are only the preferred embodiments of the present invention and these are not intended to thereby limit the embodiments and the scope of protection of the present invention. For the technical personnel in the field, should be aware of where the use of the invention instructions and diagrams content made by equivalent replacement and obviously change of the resulting scheme, shall be included in the scope of the present invention.
