Open-loop transversal equaliser of optimal length
Rutter, M., & Cowan, C. F. N. (1983)
Open-loop transversal equaliser of optimal length. Electronics Letters, 19, 208-210. https://doi.org/10.1049/el%3A19830144
As a rule, in equaliser training algorithms complexity
increases with efficiency. Unfortunately, complex recursive
algorithms do not suit high-bandwidth systems. This letter
