Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A multifunctional system comprising a turbo decoder, low complexity turbo equalizer and. data-aided frame synchronizer is developed to compensate for frequency-selective channels with fading. The turbo codes are based on Partial Unit Memory Codes, which may be constructed with higher free distance than equivalent recursive systematic convolutional codes and can achieve better performance than the latter. The purely digital multifunctional receiver is targeted for end-applications such as combat-radio and radio-relay, providing robust communication at low signal-to-noise ratio with performance approaching the Shannon limit. This paper will present the operation of a multifunctional turbo-based receiver, whose structure is reminiscent of a data-aided turbo synchronizer, both of which are described in detail.
