This paper focuses on phase noise-impaired communications. An efficient Maximum A-posteriori Probability (MAP) iterative synchronization algorithm, where detection and decoding are performed separately from phase estimation, is proposed. This approach has the following key advantages: (i) its computational complexity is relatively low and its performance is near optimal; (ii) it requires very limited statistical knowledge of the phase noise process; and (iii) it enables the direct use of 'off-the-shelf' demodulation and decoding blocks. These features are particularly attractive from the implementation viewpoint, as they lead to the design of effective pragmatic high-order coded modulated schemes. The proposed iterative synchronization and decoding algorithm, evaluated for Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC)-coded pilot symbol-assisted Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) schemes, entails a negligible energy efficiency loss with respect to optimized joint decoding and phase estimation approaches, with significantly lower computational complexity.
