Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is one key technology in wireless multimedia communication. In this paper, the performance of channel estimation methods for OFDM systems based on block-type under frequency selective fading channels is discussed. Analysis of a 3G carrier model with 1 MHz bandwidth under frequency selective fading channels is made. The pilot signal estimation based on LS, MMSE, LMMSE (a simplified MMSE algorithm with low-rank approximation using singular value decomposition) criteria, and channel interpolation based on the simple linear interpolation method. Simulation indicates its good anti-multi-path performance and anti-doppler frequency shift ability.
