In this letter, we optimize tap spacings in a tapped delay line equalizer. We derive a set of nonlinear equations for the optimum tap spacings and tap weights for the decision feedback equalizer. A recursive numerical technique is used to obtain the optimum settings. With optimized tap spacings, the proposed solutions provide performance upper bound for the decision feedback equalizer for a given number of taps.
