Turbo decoding on Rayleigh fading channels with noisy channel estimates
Paper i proceeding, 1999
A new metric for Turbo decoding on Rayleigh fading channels with noisy channel estimates is derived. By including the error variance of the channel estimate in the decoder metric derivation, we calculate the correct channel reliability factor for this case. Simulations show that the SNR gain of using this new metric, compared to if we ignore the uncertainty of the channel estimate, may be as large as 1 dB at a bit error probability of 10(-3). This gain is obtained without any complexity increase.
