In this paper we address the extrinsic information transfer functions of inner decoders for a serially concatenated coding scheme. For the case of an AWGN channel, we give a universal proof for the fact that only inner encoders yielding an infinite output weight for a weight-one input sequence, such as recursive convolutional encoders, lead to perfect(More)
Cyclic Delay Diversity (CDD) is a simple approach to introduce spatial diversity to an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) based transmission scheme that itself has no built-in diversity. It also can be regarded as a Space-Time Code (STC). But in contrast to that there is no additional effort in the receiver necessary, since the different(More)
Cyclic Delay Diversity (CDD) is a simple approach to increase the frequency selectivity of the channel as seen by the receiver in an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) based transmission scheme. The reason for this is that CDD inserts virtual echos. Due to the virtual multipath components carriers experience different channels if the antenna(More)
In this paper we introduce a new coding scheme - so-called laminated turbo codes. It is characterized by a block-convolutional structure that enables us to combine the advantages of a convolutional encoder memory and a block-oriented decoding method. We show that this block-convolutional structure is superior in terms of its error correction capability(More)
Due to its advantages with respect to allowing simple receivers and flexibility, OFDM is – in addition to already existing systems such as DVB-T or HIPERLAN/2 – presently under consideration as auspicious candidate for future wireless communication air interface. However, despite many advantages, the lack of inherent diversity of pure OFDM based(More)
In this paper, a new class of codes is presented that features a block-convolutional structure-namely, laminated turbo codes. It allows combining the advantages of both a convolutional encoder memory and a block permutor, thus allowing a block-oriented decoding method. Structural properties of laminated turbo codes are analyzed and upper and lower bounds on(More)
