A Punctured Viterbi Decoder Compatible with DVB Standards

Abstract

This paper presents an example of a Viterbi decoder compatible with DVB standards. The chosen architecture implements the Register Exchange Algorithm (REA). The REA has often been considered to be a more complex architectural solution than its competitor the Trace Back Algorithm (TBA). This paper aims at demonstrating that VLSI implementations of the… (More)
