Low-complexity blind turbo receivers composed of a soft-feedback equaliser (SFE) and fast least-squares (FLS) channel estimators are proposed. To reduce the complexity of the SFE computation, a function approximation is proposed instead of numerical algorithms in a specific step of the equaliser's computation. Concerning FLS channel estimators, a specific filter parameters initialisation procedure is proposed in each turbo iteration to avoid possible numerical instabilities. Estimation of noise variance is also considered. The proposed scheme can perform as the turbo equaliser with perfect channel knowledge from a certain signal-to-noise ratio.
