A new detection method for data-dependent superimposed training with equi-spaced amplitude modulation or equi-spaced square quadrature amplitude modulation is presented in this study. Symbol and bit error floor of the proposed detection method is analysed. To remove the error floor, a data coding method is also proposed. Analysis and simulation results show that the proposed detection method outperforms the existing methods, and the data detection performance can be further improved via data coding.
