B1 Data Adaptive Entropy Coder. Iterated decoding is now also applied to serial concatenations in order to achieve higher coding gains, such as within serially concatenated cocatenated codes SCCCs. Views Read View source View history. An early form of iterated decoding was implemented with two to five iterations in the “Galileo code” of the Galileo space probe.

In his doctoral thesisDave Forney showed that corney codes could be used to achieve exponentially decreasing error probabilities at all data rates less than capacity, with doncatenated complexity that increases only polynomially with the code block length. For example, within the DVB-S2 standard, a highly efficient LDPC code is combined with an algebraic outer code in order to remove any resilient errors condatenated over from the inner LDPC code due forny its inherent error floor.

For an overview of the history of channel coding, see Costello and Forney, Compared to the elaborate Galileo system described above, this simple RA system is much easier to decode, and, quite amazingly, performs better! The basic concatenated coding scheme considered by Forney is shown in Figure 1. The combination of an inner Viterbi convolutional code with an outer Reed—Solomon code known as an RSV code was first used in Voyager 2[5] [8] and it became a popular construction both within and outside of the space sector.

It is still notably used today for satellite communicationssuch as the DVB-S digital television broadcast standard. The field of channel coding is concerned with sending a stream of data at as high a rate as possible over a given communications channel, and then decoding the original data reliably at the receiver, using encoding and decoding algorithms that are feasible to implement in a given technology. Dave ForneyScholarpedia, 4 2: The author recalls much eye-rolling when he presented concatenated codes to a Bell Labs research group in coxes, and discussed code lengths up into the thousands.


Concatenated error correction code

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Now we have to find a polynomial-time decoding algorithm for the inner code. Consider that there is a polynomial-time unique decoding algorithm for the outer code.

Iterative decoding was used as follows: Originally introduced by Forney in to address a theoretical issue, they became widely used in space communications in the s. It is understood that polynomial running time here means that running time is polynomial in the final block length. This property can be easily shown based on the idea of defining a generator matrix for the concatenated foreny in terms of the generator matrices of C out and C in.

Service-oriented architecture Message Abstraction Layer. However, by the s, technology had advanced sufficiently that concatenated codes became standardized by Concatenates for space applications. Retrieved from ” https: When the primary antenna failed to deploy on the Galileo mission to Jupiter inheroic engineering efforts were undertaken to design the most powerful concatenated concatenaetd conceived up to that time, and to program it into the spacecraft computers.

However, a key aspect of turbo codes is their iterated decoding approach. The field of channel coding was revolutionized by the invention of turbo codes by Berrou et al. For these positions, denoted iwe have. Any such code may be regarded as a possibly elaborate concatenated code.

Retrieved from ” http: As the outer decoding algorithm in step two is assumed to run in polynomial time the complexity of the overall decoding algorithm is polynomial-time as well.


Error detection and correction Coding theory Finite fields Information theory. The main idea is that if the inner block length is selected to be logarithmic in the size of the outer code then the decoding algorithm for the inner code may run in exponential time of the inner block length, and we can thus use an exponential-time but optimal maximum likelihood decoder MLD for the inner code.

The description above is given for what is now called a serially concatenated code. Thus, there are at least D positions in which the sequence of N symbols of the codewords C out m 1 and C out m 2 differ.

McEliece ; Laif Swanson 20 August The original turbo codes of Berrou et al. The Justesen codes are examples of generalized concatenated codes, where the outer code is a Reed—Solomon code. Turbo codes and other modern capacity- approaching codes may be regarded as elaborations of this approach.

Concatenayed simple concatenation scheme is also used on the compact disc CDwhere an interleaving layer between two Reed—Solomon codes of different sizes spreads errors across various blocks. Use dmy dates from July Views Read Edit View history. While concatenated codes showed that the performance-complexity tradeoff problem of channel coding could be solved in principle, they were hardly practical in the technology of the s.

Secondly, the NASA standard incorporated an interleaver to spread out bursts of errors, because the errors out of a Viterbi decoder are somewhat bursty, and also because real space channels can suffer other kinds of burst errors. The outer code actually consisted of multiple Reed-Solomon codes of varying strengths.
