One of the major challenges in direct sequence-ultra wideband (DS-UWB) receiver design is intersymbol interference (ISI). Several equalization schemes to eliminate ISI in DS-UWB systems have been proposed in the literature. It was shown that frequency-domain (FD) equalization techniques can offer better trade off between performance and complexity compared to time- domain equalization schemes for DS-UWB systems on highly dispersive channels. In this paper, we derive low-complexity FD minimum mean square error turbo equalization schemes for single-user binary phase shift keying (BPSK) and quaternary bi-orthogonal keying (4BOK) DS-UWB systems. For multiuser DS-UWB systems, we combine FD turbo equalization schemes with soft interference cancelation to obtain multiuser FD turbo detectors. The bit error rate performance gain due to turbo detection is shown to be significant, particularly for multiuser DS-UWB systems.
