This study introduces a new low complexity Max-Log-MAP based channel estimation technique operating in a multi-path band limited channel. The proposed estimation technique is based on an iterative procedure derived through the maximum a posteriori probability approach. Wireless communication channels often undergo frequency selective fading that leads to inter-symbol interference, which limits the performance of wireless indoor systems. Performance of the algorithms is assessed by combined analysis and simulation. Results are presented and compared against the performance of conventional Log-MAP algorithm. The obtained results show that the required bit-error-rate performance can be achieved with a lower number of iterations using the proposed low complexity algorithm compared to using the conventional Log-MAP algorithm.
