The presence of a sequence detector in the baseline architecture for base stations for mobile communications has become a standard. Also the use of coding allows the baseband detector to work at very low signal to noise ratios. When spatial diversity is included in the front-end, the joint design of the beamformer, matched filter and the desired impulse response DIR of the Viterbi equalizer VE is mandatory. This work describes the joint design of these stages when the matched DIR response has priority in the maximization of the signal to noise plus interferences ratio at the input of the VE.
