Forward-only iterative decoding of convolutional self-orthogonal codes

A class of forward-only iterative belief propagation algorithms for decoding convolutional self-orthogonal codes is presented, which perform successively a number of one-step decoding and thus have only an initial decoding delay. The one-step belief propagation decoders can be realized in a similar way to one-step threshold decoders. The error performance… CONTINUE READING
