In this paper, the design of optimal receive filter banks for frequency division multiple access (FDMA) over frequency selective channels is investigated. A new design strategy based on the principle of memory truncation, rather than equalization, is presented. Through the receive filters, each subchannel is truncated to a pre-defined length, and the final data recovery is carried out via low complexity Viterbi detectors. Both closed form designs and adaptive techniques are discussed. Design examples are presented for high speed transmission over copper wires. The examples show that memory truncation allows significant performance improvements over the often used minimum mean squared error (MMSE) equalization.
