Error correcting coding is a well-known technique for reducing the required signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) needed to attain a given bit error-rate. Nevertheless, this reduction comes at the cost of extra energy consumption introduced by the baseband processing required for encoding and decoding the data. No complete analysis of the trade-off between coding gain and baseband consumption of communications over wireless channels has been reported so far. In this paper, we study the energy-consumption… CONTINUE READING
