Analysis of BICM-ID Receivers Exploiting Transformations of Extrinsic Information

In this article we analyze a novel idea to increase the applicability of Bit Interleaved Coded Modulation with Iterative Decoding (BICM-ID) to legacy waveforms. One essential design parameter of BICM-ID receivers with respect to the error correcting capabilities is the symbol mapping of the digital modulation scheme. A so-called Semi-Set Partitioning (SSP… CONTINUE READING
