In this letter, we propose a novel frequency-domain equalizer (FDE) for single-carrier systems characterized by severe inter-symbol interference (ISI) channels; it consists of a linear FDE and an iterative block noise-predictor (IBNP). Unlike the FDE with time-domain noise predictor (FDE-NP), the proposed scheme allows the feedback equalizer being an uncausal filter, and performs the noise prediction in an iterative manner. For this reason, FDE-IBNP can remove both precursor and postcursor ISI, and alleviate the impact of error-propagation. Besides, our scheme has lower computational complexity than the present iterative block equalizers.
