Conclusions Due to error propagation in the DFE, turbo decoder cannot provide performance improvement beyond the second iteration Error Floor Joint DFE and turbo decoding adds an additional loop to the system and lowers the error floor Joint channel estimator and iterative equalizer is able to decode packets with low SNR, which cannot be decoded with the DFE Tail cancellation is an effective way to reduce the computational complexity of the MAP equalizer If the channel is sparse, although the DFE filter lengths are short, the DFE is able to provide enough information to the turbo decoder A sparse DFE can be used to improve the performance of the DFE/MAP Decoder and the DFE/Turbo Decoder
