In this paper, we apply the Jacobi iterative algorithm to combat intersymbol interference caused by frequency selective channels. An analytical bound of the proposed equalizer is analyzed in order to gain an insight into its asymptotic performance. Due to the error propagation problem, the potential of this algorithm is not reached in an uncoded system. However, its extension to a coded system with the application of the turbo processing principle results in a new turbo equalization algorithm which demonstrates comparable performance with reduced complexity compared to some existing filter based turbo equalization schemes.
