In this paper we propose a frequency-domain IQ-imbalance and carrier frequency offset (CFO) compensation and equalization for OFDM transmission over doubly selective channels. IQ-imbalance and CFO arise due to imperfections in the receiver and/or transmitter analog front-end, whereas user mobility and CFO give rise to channel time-variation. In addition to IQ-imbalance and the channel time-variation, the cyclic prefix (CP) length may be shorter than the channel impulse response length, which in turn gives rise to inter-block interference (IBI). While IQ-imbalance results in a mirroring effect, the channel time-variation results in inter-carrier interference (ICI). The frequency-domain equalizer is proposed to compensate for the IQ-imbalance taking into account ICI and IBI. The frequency-domain equalizer is obtained by transferring a time-domain equalizer to the frequency-domain resulting in the so-called per-tone equalizer (PTEQ).
