An equalizer initialization technique for least mean squares (LMS) algorithm, which can equalize frequency selective multiple input multiple Output (MIMO) channels, is presented and analyzed, The proposed method conducts an initial convergence step for superior training prior to running the LMS algorithm. This approach raises the training performance while the complexity of the LMS algorithm, which is known as the simplest training algorithm, is almost the same. The proposed technique is analyzed for the initial convergence and simulated for a possible single carrier MIMO application in single carrier (SC) IEEE802.16-2004 standards. The obtained performance after coding approximates the performance of the recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm as it is presented for 3 x 3 and 5 x 5 MIMO for comparisons.
