Decoding of Convolutional Codes

- Let Cm be the set of allowable code sequences

of length m. - Not all sequences in 0,1m are allowable code

sequences! - Each code sequence can be

represented by a unique path - through the trellis diagram
- What is the probability that the code sequence

is sent and the - binary sequence is received?
- where p is the probability of bit error of BSC

from modulation

Decoding Rule for Convolutional Codes

- Maximum Likelihood Decoding Rule
- Choose the code sequence through the trellis

which has the - smallest Hamming distance to the received

sequence!

The Viterbi Algorithm

- The Viterbi Algorithm (Viterbi, 1967) is a

clever way of - implementing Maximum Likelihood Decoding.
- Computer Scientists will recognize the Viterbi

Algorithm as an - example of a CS technique called Dynamic

Programming

- Reference G. D. Forney, The Viterbi

Algorithm, - Proceedings of the IEEE, 1973
- Chips are available from many manufacturers

which - implement the Viterbi Algorithm for K lt 10
- Can be used for either hard or soft decision

decoding - We consider hard decision decoding initially

Basic Idea of Viterbi Algorithm

- There are 2rm code sequences in Cm .
- This number of sequences approaches infinity as

m - becomes large
- Instead of searching through all possible

sequences, - find the best code sequence "one stage at a

time"

The Viterbi Algorithm(Hamming Distance Metric)

- Initialization
- Let time i 0.
- We assign each state j a metric Z j (0) at time

0. - We know that the code must start in the state 0.
- Therefore we assign
- Z j (0) 0
- Z j (0) for all other states

The Viterbi Algorithm (continued)

- Consider decoding of the ith segment
- Let be the segment of n bits received

between times i - and i 1
- There are several code segments of n bits

which lead - into state j at time i1. We wish to

find the most likely one. - Let be the state from which the code

segment emerged - For each state j, we assume that is the

path leading into - state j if
- is the smallest of all the code

segments leading into state j.

The Viterbi Algorithm (continued)

- Iteration
- Let
- Let ii1
- Repeat previous step
- Incorrect paths drop out as i approaches infinity.

Viterbi Algorithm Decoding Example

- r 1/2, K 3 code from previous example
- (0 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 10 10

1 1) is sent - (0 1 1 1 0 1 0 0 10 10

1 1) is received. - What path through the trellis does the Viterbi

Algorithm choose?

Viterbi Algorithm Decoding Example(continued)

Viterbi Decoding Examples

- There is a company Alantro with a example

Viterbi - decoder on the web, made available to

promote their - website
- http//www.alantro.com/viterbi/workshop.html
- Your browser must have JAVA-enabled

Summary of Encoding and Decoding ofConvolutional

Codes

- Convolutional are encoded using a finite state

machine. - Optimal decoder for convolutional codes will

find the path - through the trellis which lies at the shortest

distance to the - received signal.
- Viterbi algorithm reduces the complexity of this

search by - finding the optimal path one stage at a time.
- The complexity of the Viterbi algorithm is

proportional to the number of states - exponential relationship to constraint length

Implementation of Viterbi Decoder

- Complexity is proportional to number of states
- increases exponentially with constrain length

K 2K - Very suited to parallel implementation
- Each state has two transitions into it
- Each state has two transitions out of it
- Each node must compute two path metrics, add

them to previous metric and compare - Much analysis as gone into optimizing

implementation of this - Butterfly calculation

Other Applications of Viterbi Algorithm

- Any problem that can be framed in terms of

sequence detection can be - solved with the Viterbi Algorithm
- MLSE Equalization
- Decoding of continuous phase modulation
- Multiuser detection

Continuous Operation

- When continuous operation is desired, decoder

will automatically synchronize with transmitted

signal without knowing state - Optimal decoding requires waiting until all

bits are received to trace back path. - In practice, it is usually safe to assume that

all paths have merged after approximately 5K time

intervals - diminishing returns after delay of 5K

Frame Operation of Convolutional Codes

- Frequently, we desire to transfer short (e.g.,

192 bit) - frames with convolutional codes.
- When we do this, we must find a way to terminate
- code trellis
- Truncation
- Zero-Padding
- Tail-biting
- Note that the trellis code is serving as a

block code in - this application

Trellis Termination Zero Padding

- Add K-1 0s to the end of the data sequence to

force - the trellis back to the all zeros state
- Performance is good
- Now both start and ending state are known by the

decoder - Wastes bits in short frame

Performance of Convolutional Codes

- When the decoder chooses a path through the

trellis which diverges from the correct path,

this is called an "error event - The probability that an error event begins

during the current time interval is the

"first-event error probablity Pe - The minimum Hamming distance separating any two

distinct path through the trellis is called the

free distance dfree.

Calculation of Error Event Probability

- What's the pairwise probability of choosing a

path at distance d from the correct path?

Calculation of First Event Error Probability

Evaluating Error ProbabilityUsing the Transfer

Function Bound

Finding T(D) from State Diagram

- Break all 0s state in two, creating a starting

state and a terminating state - Re-label every output 1 as a D
- ad is the number of distinct paths leading from

the starting state to the terminating state while

generating the function Dd
