The IS-856 system delivers high spectral efficiency on the forward link by using dynamic link adaptation, hybrid ARQ and multiuser diversity scheduling. The channel coding/modulation scheme used on the forward link is designed to support incremental redundancy for hybrid ARQ, while maximizing the coding gain over static channels. This paper presents the(More)
The Wigner-Ville distribution (WVD) is a valuable tool for time-frequency signal analysis. In order to implement the WVD in real time, an efficient algorithm and architecture have been developed which may be implemented with-commercial components. This algorithm successively computes the analytic signal corresponding to the input signal, forms a weighted(More)
— To achieve unlimited concurrency and hence throughput in an area-efficient manner, a sliding block Viterbi decoder (SBVD) is implemented that combines the filtering characteristics of a sliding block decoder with the computational efficiency of the Viterbi algorithm. The SBVD approach reduces decode of a continuous input stream to decode of independent(More)
