This lesson covers the fundamentals of equalization techniques used in wireless communications. It delves into linear and non-linear equalizers, discussing their structures, algorithms, and applications. The lesson also explores the decision feedback equalizer, maximum likelihood symbol detection, and maximum likelihood sequence estimation. It further explains three important algorithms for adaptive equalization: zero forcing, least mean square (LMS), and recursive least square (RLS). For instance, the LMS algorithm is highlighted for its slow convergence rate, while the RLS algorithm is noted for its rapid convergence rate.

- Equalization techniques are crucial in wireless communications to overcome channel impediments.
- Linear equalizers work well on channels with a flat spectrum but struggle with channels having deep spectral nulls.
- Non-linear equalizers, such as the decision feedback equalizer, are used when channel distortions are too severe for linear equalizers.
- The LMS algorithm, while popular, has a slow convergence rate, making it less suitable for real-time applications.
- The RLS algorithm offers a rapid convergence rate, making it ideal for applications requiring quick adaptations.
