High Speed Data Transmission Using Coding


Article Preview

The relible and fast data transmission over noisy band limitted channels is the basic requirment of digital communication and transmission system. Reliability considerations require that forward error correction techniques be used. This techniques find and correct limitted erros caused by a transport or storage systems. Such coding technique is therefore used to help compensate for signal degradation and provide increase in system capacity and reliability. In this paper, we analyze the performance of three codes which are the Reed Soloman Code, the convolutional code, and turbo code for the same signal that is corrupted by transmission channel. The type of channel considered in this work is the AWGN. For the same message length, the turbo code gives the best performance and the Reed Soloman Code gave the poorest performance when the signal is corrupted by AWGN channel.
