In contrast to the classical cyclic prefix (CP)-OFDM, the time domain synchronous (TDS)-OFDM employs a known pseudo noise (PN) sequence as guard interval (GI). Conventional channel estimation methods for TDS-OFDM are only based on the PN sequence and consequently suffer from intersymbol interference. This paper proposes a novel two-stage channel estimation method which combines the estimation results from the PN sequence and, most importantly, the estimation results obtained from the OFDM data symbols. A simple feedback loop that excludes the channel decoder is employed for the OFDM data based estimation. The MMSE criteria is used to obtain the best combination results and an iterative process is proposed to progressively refine the estimation. Both MSE and BER simulations are carried out to prove the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm in the DTMB system which is based on TDS-OFDM signalling.
