Abstract

A new technique for iterative decoding of parallel concatenated convolutional (turbo) codes (PCCC's) for the correlated fast Rayleigh fading channel is proposed and evaluated, This technique is based upon the use of a multiple differential detector (MDD) receiver structure which exploits the statistical characteristics of the fading process to overcome the effects of the rapid phase and amplitude variations, Since traditional MDD receivers cannot be used with PCCC's because they do not produce soft output and are not compatible with channel interleaving, a novel MDD receiver structure is derived which overcomes these shortfalls, In addition, with careful use of extrinsic information related to the a posteriori probability distribution function of the transmitted symbols, the receiver is designed in such a fashion as to allow channel estimation to improve with each iteration, Evaluation of the proposed receiver by means of computer simulation has shown dramatic performance improvements in fast Rayleigh fading channels as compared to long constraint-length conventional convolutional codes using both single and traditional MDD receiver structures.
