I'm trying to decode a Hamming Block Code transmitted using a QPSK modulation. For the moment I can sucessfully decode it using hard decision but in order to improve performance I'd like to use soft ...
for the (7,4) Hamming code, I know how to decode a codeword using the syndrome decoding method, by just using the 3 parity bits, and it is correctable if there is just 1 error. However, for the (8,4) ...
It seems that when doing FEC with a concatenated-code, an interleaver is often placed between the outer block code and the inner convolution code. The explanations I've seen say that this is because ...
I have a parity matrix ("H") that is not in canonical form (the identity matrix is not on the right side). I'm trying to programatically calculate the generator matrix ("G") from it. The Wikipedia ...
I am in trouble with Viterbi decoder for a while. I have some questions. I need to decode messages from a continuous stream which is encoded without resetting the state metrics. Each message starts ...
What kind of bit error rate do they get from deep space communications (Pioneer, Voyager, et.al.), and what kind of modulation and FEC allows them to recover messages with that microscopic level of ...
