Blind Channel Equalization of Star QAM using Dual Dispersion MCMA Algorithm
DEE, CE&ME, National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), 44000, Islamabad, Pakistan
An algorithm for blind channel equalization is presented for 16 and 32 Star QAM, namely, Dual Dispersion MCMA algorithm. The algorithm taking the concept from MCMA, uses the Dual Dispersion minimization approach for blind channel equalization. As Star QAM constellation contains two rings, so instead of one, dual dispersion minimization approach is used for its both rings. With modification in MCMA cost function, the new algorithm results improved performance in convergence rate of Residual ISI and MSE against MCMA algorithm. By incorporating decision directed approach, the performance increases drastically. Simulation results show effectiveness of proposed algorithm in removing the ISI and correcting the errors in symbols of received signal.
