Reduced-complexity syndrome-based TTCM decoding

Babar, Zunaira, Ng, Soon Xin and Hanzo, Lajos (2013) Reduced-complexity syndrome-based TTCM decoding IEEE Communications Letters, 17, (6), pp. 1220-7798. (doi:10.1109/LCOMM.2013.050313.130182).

The iterative decoder of Turbo Trellis Coded Modulation (TTCM) exchanges extrinsic information between the constituent TCM decoders, which imposes a high computational complexity at the receiver. Therefore we conceive the syndrome-based block decoding of TTCM, which is capable of reducing the decoding complexity by disabling the decoder, when syndrome becomes zero. Quantitatively, we demonstrate that a decoding complexity reduction of at least 17% is attained at high SNRs, with at least 20% and 45% reduction in the 5th and 6th iterations, respectively.
