Decision feedback equalizers (DFEs) are widely used in modern local network digital transmission systems to remove the intersymbol interference caused by slowly decaying pulse tails. A gradient descent algorithm for adapting a coefficient to model the slowly decaying portion of the tail is described. An equalization strategy is described that exploits prior knowledge of the nature of the subscriber loop channel, together with the new adaptation algorithm, to give reduced complexity DFE structures. The use of this algorithm in FIR and IIR equalizer structures is described. The use of this algorithm in FIR and IIR equalizers is quantitatively compared to a conventional DFE in terms of performance and implementation complexity. An analysis is presented describing the operation of the adaptation algorithm in the presence of noise. Simulation results illustrate the training of the algorithm and its stability in the presence of near-end crosstalk noise
