A High-Throughput Maximum <emphasis emphasistype="italic">a Posteriori</emphasis> Probability Detector

Abstract

This paper presents a maximum a <i>posteriori</i> probability (MAP) detector, based on a forward-only algorithm that can achieve high throughputs. The MAP algorithm is optimal in terms of bit error rate (BER) performance and, with Turbo processing, can approach performance close to the channel capacity limit. The implementation benefits from optimizations… (More)
