To combat the effects of intersymbol interference (ISI), the optimal equalizer to be used is based on maximum a posteriori (MAP) detection. In this paper, we consider the case where the MAP equalizer is fed with a priori information on the transmitted data and propose to study analytically their impact on the MAP equalizer performance. We assume that the channel is not perfectly estimated and show that the use of both the a priori information and the channel estimate is equivalent to a shift in terms of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for which we provide an analytical expression. Simulation results show that the analytical expression approximates well the equalizer behavior
