A decision feedback equalizer (DFE) containing a feedback filter with both poles and zeros is proposed for high-speed digital communications over the subscriber loop. The feedback filter is composed of a relatively short FIR filter that cancels the initial part of the channel impulse response, which may contain rapid variations due to bridge taps, and a pole-zero, or IIR, filter that cancels the smoothly decaying tail of the impulse response. Modifications of an adaptive IIR algorithm, based on the Steiglitz-McBride (1965) identification scheme, are proposed to adapt the feedback filter. A measured subscriber loop impulse response is used to compare the performance of the adaptive pole-zero DFE, assuming a two-pole feedback filter, with a conventional DFE having the same number of coefficients. Results show that the pole-zero DFE offers a significant improvement in mean squared error relative to the conventional DFE. The speed convergence of the adaptive pole-zero DFE is comparable to that of the conventional DFE using the standard least mean square (LMS) adaptive algorithm
