Commonly used time domain equalizer (TEQ) design methods have been
recently unified as an optimization problem involving an objective
function in the form of a Rayleigh quotient.
The direct generalized eigenvalue solution relies on matrix decompositions.
To reduce implementation complexity, we propose an iterative refinement
approach in which the TEQ length starts at two taps and increases by one
tap at each iteration.
Each iteration involves matrix-vector multiplications and vector
additions with 2 x 2 matrices and two-element vectors.
At each iteration, the optimization of the objective function either
improves or the approach terminates.
The iterative refinement approach provides a range of communication
performance versus implementation complexity tradeoffs for any TEQ
method that fits the Rayleigh quotient framework.
We apply the proposed approach to three such TEQ design methods:
maximum shortening signal-to-noise ratio, minimum intersymbol interference,
and minimum delay spread.
