In this paper, single carrier frequency domain equalization with space time transmit diversity was implemented and evaluated in real-time using a DSP-based wireless MIMO test-bed. The implemented schemes supported a large set of modulations, from BPSK up to QAM64. Zero padding is introduced to mitigate inter-block interference. Robust time and frequency synchronization together with channel estimation based on Kalman filtering is used to address the adverse inter-symbol interference and the severe carrier frequency offset due to hardware impairments.
