Punctured space time turbo trellis codes: rate adaptation and optimisation issues


We consider the use of puncturing under the scope of space time turbo trellis codes. On one hand we consider the use of puncturing as a simple mechanism to allow varying the transmission rate, investigating the performance improvement/degradation when decreasing/increasing the spectral efficiency of the code. Then, we focus on the application of the EXIT… (More)
