Near-capacity turbo trellis coded modulation design based on EXIT charts and union bounds.
IEEE Transactions on Communications, 56, (12), . (doi:10.1109/TCOMM.2008.06039522).
Bandwidth ef?cient parallel-concatenated Turbo Trellis Coded Modulation (TTCM) schemes were designed for communicating over uncorrelated Rayleigh fading channels. A symbol-based union bound was derived for analysing the error ?oor of the proposed TTCM schemes. A pair of In-phase (I) and Quadrature-phase (Q) interleavers were employed for interleaving the I and Q components of the TTCM coded symbols, in order to attain an increased diversity gain. The decoding convergence of the IQ-TTCM schemes was analysed using symbol-based EXtrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) charts. The best TTCM component codes were selected with the aid of both the symbol-based union bound and non-binary EXIT charts, for designing capacity-approaching IQ-TTCM schemes in the context of 8PSK, 16QAM, 32QAM and 64QAM modulation schemes.
