Thanks Martin,
your information very helpful.
for current, what is equalizer which used on gnuradio 3.7 ?

from gnuradio 3.7 API there are three equalizer. cma, kurtotic and lms equalizer.
what is equalizer which used?


Thanks,
Zai

With 3.7, it's quite simple. OFDM signals are equalized using blocks of
type ofdm_frame_equalizer_vcvc. This block doesn't actually do the
signal processing; instead, you drop in an instance of a
ofdm_equalizer_base class.

So all you need to do is derive from ofdm_equalizer_base and pass it to
ofdm_frame_equalizer_vcvc.

Of course, in a practical system, you have two components for your
equalization: The channel estimation and the actual equalization.
You probably need to work on both. However, if you stick to the current
OFDM frame structure, you will get an initial estimate of the channel.
If you have a static channel, zero forcing will work out of the box with
the available equalizers.

For MMSE, you will need a way to estimate the SNR inside the equalizer.
IIRC, you need the symbol alphabet for that. Simply make it an argument
for the equalizer class.

If you finish a working MMSE implementation, I'd love to see the code.

Cheers,
MB
