We address the blind equalization of finite-impulse-response (FIR), multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels excited by constant modulus (CM) signals. It is known that the algorithms based on the constant modulus (CM) criterion can equalize an FIR MIMO channel that is irreducible and column-reduced. We show in this paper that the CM property of signals can be exploited to construct a zero-forcing equalizer for a non-irreducible and non-column-reduced channel. We also give a lower bound for the order of the equalizer. Simulation examples demonstrate the proposed result.
