The paper investigates the application of the multilayer perceptron structure to the packet wise adaptive decision feedback equalization of a M-ary QAM signal through a TDMA indoor radio channel in the presence of intersymbol interference (ISI) and additive Gaussian noise. Since the multilayer neural networks are capable of producing complex decision regions with arbitrarily nonlinear boundaries, this would greatly improve the performance of conventional decision feedback equalizer (DFE), where the decision boundaries of conventional DFE's are linear. Nevertheless, the applications of the traditional multilayer neural networks have been limited to real valued signals. To tackle this difficulty, a neural based DFE is proposed to deal with the complex QAM signal over the complex valued fading multipath radio channel without performing time consuming complex valued backpropagation training algorithms, while maintaining almost the same computational complexity as the original real valued training algorithm. Moreover, this neural based DFE trained by packet wise backpropagation algorithm would approach an ideal equalizer after receiving a sufficient number of packets. Results show that the neural based DFE provides a superior bit error rate performance relative to the conventional mean square DFE, especially in poor signal to noise ratio conditions
