A state-space approach to the syndrome decoding of binary rate k/n convolutfonal codes is described. State-space symmeties of a certain class of codes can be exploited to obtain a reduct ion in the exponent of growth of the decoder hardware. Aside from these savings it is felt that the state-space formalism developed has some unique intrinsic value.
