Design and Implementation of Viterbi Decoder with FPGAs

  title={Design and Implementation of Viterbi Decoder with FPGAs},
  author={M. Kivioja and Jouni Isoaho and L. V{\"a}nsk{\"a}},
  journal={VLSI Signal Processing},
In this paper we present our studies for implementing complex DSP and Telecom systems in FPGAs. We analyse suitability of FPGA device architectures for implementing complex algorithms. Here we use a Viterbi algorithm as a deeper case study. Different architectural strategies for implementations are discussed and analysed with the special emphasis on practical FPGA implementations. Speed performance, easy routability and minimisation of inter-chip communication are used as design criteria… CONTINUE READING
