Recently, the direct conversion scheme has been actively investigated for the purpose of cost miniaturization and low power consumption of wireless receivers. IQ imbalance is one of the problems for the direct conversion receiver. In the case of OFCDM modulations, this IQ imbalance causes intercarrier interference (ICI) in the demodulated signals. In this paper, the decision directed scheme for IQ imbalance compensation is proposed. In the proposed scheme, the combination of received symbols which satisfies orthogonality conditions is used for compensation of IQ imbalance. Therefore, in addition to the pilot symbols, the received symbols can be used in order to improve the accuracy of the compensation matrix and BER can be reduced.
