The adoption of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) of wireless local area networks and audio/video broadcasting standards testifies to the importance of recovering block precoded transmissions propagating through frequency-selective FIR channels. Existing block transmission standards invoke bandwidth-consuming error control codes to mitigate channel fades and training sequences to identify the FIR channels. To enable low-complexity block-by-block receiver processing, we design redundant precoders with cyclic prefix (CP) and superimposed training sequences for optimal channel estimation and guaranteed symbol recovery regardless of the underlying FIR frequency-selective channels. Numerical results are presented to access the performance of the designed training and precoding schemes.
