Performance analysis of turbo-SPC codes

This correspondence concerns the performance analysis of turbo-single-parity-check (SPC) codes based on the union bound of bit-error rate (BER). A treatment of the special interleavers used in turbo-SPC codes is discussed. It is shown that simple two- or four-state turbo-SPC codes with multiple component codes can perform comparably as (or even better than… CONTINUE READING
