—Belief propagation (BP) is a powerful algorithm to decode low-density parity check (LDPC) codes over additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels. However, the traditional BP algorithm cannot adapt efficiently to the statistical change of SNR in an AWGN channel. This paper proposes an adaptive scheme that incorporates a particle filtering (PF) algorithm(More)
The focus of this paper is to provide a framework for the joint optimization of both the coefficient quantization and multiple constant multiplication (MCM) problems. It is known that while the MCM problem is complete in the subspace of integer constants, it is incomplete and not optimal in the real world where the MCM constants are often noninteger. In(More)
—Enhanced tornado detection and tracking can prevent loss of life and property damage. The research weather surveillance radar (WSR)-88D locally operated by the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) in Norman, OK, has the unique capability of collecting massive volumes of time-series data over many hours, which provides a rich environment for evaluating(More)
This paper discusses a real-time digital signal processor (DSP)-based hierarchical neural network classifier capable of classifying both analog and digital modulation signals. A high-performance DSP processor, namely the TMS320C6701, is utilized to implement different kinds of classifiers including a hierarchical neural network classifier. A total of 31(More)
