In this letter, a novel time-domain recursive algorithm is proposed for a minimum-mean-squared error (MMSE) with successive interference cancellation (SIC) scheme. This algorithm allows us to reduce the complexity of classical MMSE-SIC equalizer for suppressing intercarrier interference (ICI) caused by time-varying multipath channels in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems, and it can provide almost the same performance as that of the optimal MMSE-SIC equalizer. It is shown in complexity analysis that the proposed scheme shows better complexity reduction than previously reported low-complexity MMSE-SIC schemes when applied to a channel equalizer for an OFDM system.
