We propose a method for exploiting transmit diversity using parallel independent intersymbol interference channels together with an iterative equalizing receiver. Linear iterative turbo equalization (LITE) employs an interleaver in the transmitter and passes a priori information on the transmitted symbols between multiple soft-input/soft-output minimum mean-square error linear equalizers in the receiver. We describe the LITE algorithm, present simulations for both stationary and fading channels, and develop a framework for analyzing the evolution of the a priori information as the algorithm iterates.
