Tee, R, Nguyen Dang, T, Ng, S, Yang, L-L and Hanzo, L (2007) Luby Transform Coding Aided Bit-Interleaved Coded Modulation for the Wireless Internet At IEEE VTC'07 (Fall), United States. 30 Sep - 03 Oct 2007. , pp. 2025-2029.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Bit-Interleaved Coded Modulation using Iterative Decoding (BICM-ID) is amalgamated with Luby Transform (LT) coding. The resultant joint design of the physical and data link layer substantially improves the attainable Bit Error Rate (BER) performance. A Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) combined with a novel Log-Likelihood Ratio (LLR) based packet reliability estimation method is proposed for the sake of detecting and disposing of erroneous packets. Subsequently, bit-by-bit LT decoding is proposed, which facilitates a further BER improvement at a lower number of BICM-ID iterations. Finally, we revisit the pseudo random generator function used for designing the LT generator matrix.
