Single carrier frequency domain equalisation (SCFDE) has been used for broadband data transmission. In this paper, we propose a well-known low complexity mechanism, called adaptive set-membership normalised complex least mean square (SM-NCLMS) algorithm, considering frequency domain linear equalisation (FDLE). Simulation results show that the proposed SM-NCLMS algorithm can achieve the same performance of standard technique as compared with the existing algorithm.
