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

Partial Unit Memory (PUM) codes are a class of low complexity, non-binary convolutional codes and have been shown recently to outperform equivalent convolutional codes. We present the Extrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) charts of parallel concatenated PUM codes and PUM Woven Turbo Codes and analyse them to assess their performance compared with well-known turbo codes used by the third generation mobile UNITS standard. The EXIT chart analysis is supported by Bit Error Rate (BER) plots. We show that the concatenated PUM codes outperform the well-known turbo codes in the error floor region, with comparable performance in the waterfall region.
