The residual redundancy that intentionally or unintentionally remains in source encoded streams can be exploited by joint source-channel coding. This principle has been successfully applied to variable-length encoded sequences via iterative detection. It has been shown that the resulting source-channel decoding outperforms the separable counterpart. However, the computational complexity of the two systems are not comparable. We pose the question: with equivalent computational complexity, is it… CONTINUE READING
