In this paper, a new block adaptive decision feedback equalizer (DFE) implemented in the frequency domain is derived. The new algorithm is suitable for applications requiring long adaptive equalizers, as is the case in several high-speed wireless communication systems. The inherent "causality" problem appearing in the block adaptive formulation of the DFE equations is overcome by using tentative decisions in place of the unknown ones within each block. These tentative decisions are subsequently improved by using an efficient iterative procedure, which finally converges to the optimum decisions in a few iterations. This procedure is properly initialized by applying a minimization criterion that utilizes all the available information. The whole algorithm, including the iterative procedure, is implemented in the frequency domain and exhibits a considerable reduction in computational complexity, as compared with the conventional DFE, offering, at the same time, a noticeable increase in convergence speed. Additionally, the level of the steady-state MSE, which is achieved by the new algorithm, is practically insensitive to the block length.
