Turbo codes have been incorporated into many important wireless communication standards including the satellite return channel in DVB-RCS standards. According to their iterative nature, the computational complexity of turbo decoder is much higher than that of convolutional FEC decoders. From the hardware implementation point of view, the complexity can be reduced by using quantized decoder. For DVB-RCS turbo coding, there are many block sizes and different code rates. In order to realize the… CONTINUE READING
