Improving the distance properties of turbo codes using a third component code: 3D turbo codes - [transactions letters]


Thanks to the probabilistic message passing performed between its component decoders, a turbo decoder is able to provide strong error correction close to the theoretical limit. However, the minimum Hamming distance (dmin) of a turbo code may not be sufficiently large to ensure large asymptotic gains at very low error rates (the so-called flattening effect… (More)
