Paper Abstract

For radio communication systems powerful error correction codes are necessary to operate in noisy and fading channel conditions. Iterative forward error correction schemes like Turbo codes can achieve near Shannon capacity performance on memory-less channels and also perform well on correlated fading channels. The key to the excellent decoding performance of the Turbo coding systems is the BCJR algorithm in conjunction with the iterative processing of the soft decision information. A very popular modulation technique is Differential Phase Shift Key (DPSK) which is not only a simple non-coherent modulation and demodulation technique, it is also a recursive rate one code. Combining DPSK with a single convolutional code structure as an iterative inner outer forward error correction system can provide excellent Turbo like performance. Monte Carlo simulation results will be shown for the Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) and Rayleigh fading channels for 1, 2, 3 and 4 bits per symbol DPSK.
