In this paper, a new time-domain soft-decision feedback (TDSDF) aided frequency domain turbo equalizer (FDTE) is proposed for broadband single-carrier (SC) spatial modulation (SM) systems. Specifically, the proposed equalizer operates on a frame-by-frame basis and is designed based on the minimum block-averaged mean-square error (MBMSE) criterion. To tackle the error propagation problem, a metric in consideration of the reliability of the feedback information is considered. The optimal coefficients of the forward and feedback filters involved in the TDSDF-FDTE design are derived analytically. Simulation results show that the proposed nonlinear TDSDF-FDTE detector is capable of offering a better tradeoff between the bit-error-rate (BER) performance and the imposed computational complexity than the conventional linear frequency domain turbo demapper (FDTD) conceived for SC-SM systems. Furthermore, a 4 dB improvement is observed for the unbalanced channel.
