In this paper channel estimation techniques are
considered as the support methods for OFDM transmission systems
based on Non Binary LDPC (Low Density Parity Check) codes.
Standard frequency domain pilot aided LS (Least Squares) and
LMMSE (Linear Minimum Mean Square Error) estimators are
investigated. Furthermore, an iterative algorithm is proposed as a
solution exploiting the NB-LDPC channel decoder to improve the
performance of the LMMSE estimator. Simulation results of signals
transmitted through fading mobile channels are presented to compare
the performance of the proposed channel estimators.
