In this letter, a new feedback equalization scheme to suppress inter-carrier interference (ICI) in an OFDM system using scattered pilot is investigated. On a fast fading channel severe ICI occurs due to a Doppler shift and it deteriorates a bit error rate (BER) seriously because of small subcarrier spacing. In an ISDB-T receiver the equalization is mainly processed in a frequency domain because the scattered pilot is transmitted over the subcarriers. However, the frequency domain equalization may not suppress severe ICI in the case of the fast fading channel with a large Doppler shift. The proposed equalization scheme uses the scattered pilot symbols transformed in a time domain as the reference signal for feedback taps. Numerical results through computer simulation show that the proposed scheme improves the BER performance especially with low carrierto-noise ratio (CNR) conditions.
