AbstractBlind adaptive equalization with application for Non-Linearly Amplified (NLA) quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) systems in multipath selective fading channels is presented. With an offset sampling strategy in the receiver, the proposed blind equalization using Constant Modulus Algorithm (CMA) exhibits a fast convergent speed for a family of quadrature modulated systems in NLA and multipath fading channels. Feher’s patented Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (FQPSK) and Feher’s Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (FQAM) which correspond respectively to 4-state and 16-state QAM are used due to their higher Radio Frequency (RF) power and spectral efficiency in NLA channel. It has been shown that blind adaptive equalization can significantly open the eye signals in multipath frequency selective fading channels.
