Research Project (BERP) home page. This project is under the guidance
and supervision of Dr. Martin S. Roden. The members of the project
team include both undergraduates and graduate students from the
School of Engineering and Technology at CSU Los Angeles.
Blind equalization is a method employed to recover with some certainty,
noisy signals that undergoes distortions during transmission through
an unknown characteristics of the channel. The major task for this
project is to investigate the performance of communication systems
using blind equalizers. The blind equalizer performance is usually
measured by its convergence time (or performance of the Probability
of error curve) when the signal to noise ratio (SNR) is low, and
inter-symbol interference (ISI) is presently high. Our present approach
uses baseband technique for the signal modulation and recovery,
thus eliminating the carrier which would eventually be cancelled
during demodulation. Also the concept of an adaptive array
receiver to deal with noise elimination along with an embedded Least
Means Square (LMS) and Sato Algorithms for the reduction of ISI.
These concepts are readily simulated on Signal Processing Workstation
(SPW). Please check our Software Information page link or
